Obtaining the Certificate

My domain is: Anura7.ca

I ran this command: http://anura7.ca/certsage.php. If you run anura7.ca, it shows my learning website to help my cousin.

I didn't have any issues with my subdomains such as promo.anura7.ca to get the certificate. Thanks For your help:

The picture shows "certsage.pgp".
[which should have been "certsage.php"]

If you really started with HTTP:// then it looks like Chrome has switched it to HTTPS. Probably because an HTTPS connection is setup but with an invalid cert. Your cert has a name for *.prod.phx3.secureserver.net from Starfield.

Chrome has various settings to try to be more secure.
You could use the Advanced option on that screen to ensure it's the cert you setup and proceed anyway until you can replace it with a valid one.
OR, try a different browser.
OR, reconfigure your server so it does not have a valid HTTPS connection.

Thanks Mike;
I managed to enter http://anura7.ca/certsage.php after clearing the history at Crome to receive the following.


Then, I went to C-Panel File Manager to notice following in the following attachment.

  1. nothing inside the certsage folder
  2. well-known folder has been created with subfolder acme-challenge (emplty). That was not there earlier.

Nothing inside the certsage folder. I attached my certsage.php file in the above
certsage.txt (26.2 KB)

Thanks for your helps. Regards Anura

Thanks Mike. Your input helped me lot. Sometimes, following information may be helpful for @griffin or another volunter as seen in the following attachement. As you can see, I was able to get certificates for subdomains of mv.anura7.ca and promo.anura7.ca.

I will make an attempt again after 2022-11-09T05:11:44Z: and keep you posted.


Thanks you all. Super great service. Regards Anura

So, here's the problem. For the addon domain names, you want the $dataDirectory (line 18) to be "../../CertSage" so that your keys aren't available on the internet via anura7.ca/CertSage/some.key. For the primary domain name, you want it to be the default "../CertSage". Notice on the lefthand side of your File Manager screenshot that there's a CertSage folder right below .trash. That's where the cert and key for your primary domain name got saved. Once you change the other copies of the CertSage script as I've instructed above (and to make it easy you can just copy and paste a changed copy to the webroot directories of all your addon domain names), your certificates and keys for ALL of your websites should appear in that CertSage folder below .trash. That means they'll be overwritten each time you run CertSage from any website (though the account keys will be reused, which is by design). If for some reason you wish to use separate data directories for each site, you can simply change "CertSage" in the $dataDirectory variable to any name you like.

Also...
There is a newer version (1.3.0) than the one you are using (1.2.0).

Thanks Griffin, for your time to explain it in detail.
I took the relevant copies of from /CertSage under .trash folder to copy to the domain of Anura7.ca under the relevant sections of SSL/TLS. Managed to install the certificate.. https://anura7.ca worked well. When I requested the certificates, I have mentioned only anura7.ca without www.anura7.ca. So, for me to enable HTTPS Redirection, I will request again after November 11.
You guys are awesome. Instantaneous, replies. Thanks again Regards Anura

Hi Griffin: I tried the latest version. It is asking for a password.
I am not sure what password to enter. Thanks Anura
