SOLVED:SSL for Godaddy

Hi guys,

Can you send me all the steps required to issue and install SSL on Godaddy shared hosting account?
I’m executing this script:

export GD_Key=“sdfsdfsdfljlbjkljlkjsdfoiwje”

export GD_Secret=“asdfsdafdsfdsfdsfdsfdsafd” --issue --dns dns_gd -d -d

And it works. But there are additional steps required in order to install the SSL.
After this command, I try this one: --install-cert -d
–cert-file /path/to/certfile/in/apache/cert.pem
–key-file /path/to/keyfile/in/apache/key.pem
–fullchain-file /path/to/fullchain/certfile/apache/fullchain.pem
–reloadcmd “service apache2 force-reload”

But apache2 command is not found…
Can you send me all steps required?

Hi @s7ankoff

if you use a Godaddy shared hosting, I don’t think you are able to install a certificate.

Ask Godaddy.

Just solved my issue by reading posts…

Thanks anyway :)))


Ah, thanks, good to know.

I don’t use Godaddy, shared hostings normally don’t allow to script such things.

Looks like a good guide, thanks @s7ankoff. Didn’t know of that one. Bookmarked.

It also counters some of the arguments made in the Let’s Encrypt documentation about GoDaddy which @JuergenAuer posted earlier. Especially the cPanel script makes automation possible, which is great!
