[SEE SELF_REPLY UPDATE] Hi Guys. Thank you so much (Griffin) for pointing me to the Certbot Bitnami SSL SAN certificate creation guide - worked a treat and hopefully when it comes to auto renew "it just does it".
This one didn't even require TXT files and just worked. Generate and Install a Let's Encrypt SSL Certificate for a Bitnami Application
I am a total noob and you've got me up and running with a few links and a bit of insight. Many thanks again.
Now I'm ready to redirect http:// to https:// as I can see people are going to receive security warnings when they type in my web address.
I've been reading this forum a lot, I'm just too new to have a go at this without a step-by-step guide, so can anyone suggest the best HSTS tutorial for my needs?
The website at most will have a contact form so I don't want to do the white-list as I'm seeing some difficult problems arise not being able to connect if there's a certificate issue. Am I right here?
The certs seem ok?
It looks like HSTS solves a lot of my problems although I'm needing a tutorial on how to set preferred www and non-www although this might be covered when applying HSTS? Not sure...
oof! H can't be good?! (no encryption)
My web server is (include version): Bitnami WordPress 5.6.1-1
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Linux / Debian 4.19.181-1 / Apache Installed
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Amazon Lightsail (Wordpress Instance)
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): Yes
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): Erm... not sure, this command isn't working but I did use Cerbot for sure.
