Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
My domain is: franklynam.com
I ran this command:
It produced this output:
My web server is (include version): ESP8266
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ESP8266
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
I have a question about how LetsEncypt handles an authenticator validation and then how the resultant certs can be subsequently used. I am trying to setup an SSL web server on an ESP8266 Arduino variant board. I can get this working using a self-signed cert but this is no good to me because all browsers nowadays by default block access to web servers delivered via self-signed SSL links.
My question is, is it possible to create a LetsEncrypt cert using certbot and associate it with a Domain A that I own - I can run the certbot command on a machine that is pointed to by Domain A - and then take this cert and use it as the cert for the Arduino web server? I have a DNS server running on the Arduino that can be set up to point Domain A to the address of the Arduino.
Does that make sense? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
