following this guys tutorial Free SSL Certificate for GoDaddy - Install letsencrypt SSL - YouTube
So it's using a webbased, very manual approach. Two things:
- This manual approach is not recommended, but GoDaddy makes it very hard to automate things;
- The tutorial speaks about two certificates being present in the "certificate output" of PunchSalad where it currently should have three certificates in the output! So the copy/paste part of the "second" certificate should probably be "second and third" certificate.
As I said, this manual approach is not recommended. It's also very cumbersome. @griffin, a fellow volunteer on this Community, has written an ACME client completely written in PHP which can be used on your GoDaddy server and also issue a certificate! While it still contains manual parts (it should be possible to automate this on GoDaddy though, however, there are just 24 hours in a day and time is sparse, so it hasn't been developed yet..), it is much easier to work with compared to using PunchSalad. You can find the mentioned client CertSage here:
ok I understand thank you
I read in some thread here in the letsencrypt community forum, that it is possible to get shell access to godaddy server. With shell access you can freely select the ACME client to automatize the certificate issuance.
Thanks for the ping, @Osiris.
As the resident GoDaddy guy, I can say that GoDaddy has some peculiarities that I designed CertSage to cleanly handle. If you're using cPanel shared hosting, you can access a terminal through cPanel, which only appears in the Advanced section when you enable SSH. However, without root access, which you don't have, the large majority of ACME clients won't work. CertSage does not require root access.
I think you said godaddy had problem with multiple intermediate certs so they picked short chain without DST root
can they process long chain with multiple intermediates?
Not sure honestly. They handle the CA bundle fillin by themselves. I'll have to test. I always paste all three certs returned by Boulder into the certificate box, but they seem to ignore the last two. I think I'll test overriding their automatic fillin of the CA cert with the two intermediates.
thanks griffin for sharing ! I'll test it out ! so it would eliminate the problem of not safe on mobile if i installed the certificate through your script ?
CertSage is a first-party ACME client, which means that all sensitive materials, such as your ACME account and certificate private keys, are generated directly on your webserver by the client. Moreover, unauthorized parties are prevented from using CertSage on your behalf by a 96-bit random code that changes every time CertSage is run. Only someone with access to CertSage's data folder (where your ACME account keys, certificate key, and certificate are saved) can retrieve that code.
CertSage is also the simplest way to get your certificate when using GoDaddy shared hosting. You can have your certificate within minutes of downloading CertSage using your favorite web browser on your smartphone. I'm not joking when I say that I've renewed and installed a certificate using my smartphone while waiting for a latte at Starbucks.
yes i have tried it, it is great but there is a small issue, i did it first time for my main domain in the public_html, then i decided to delete it again and insert another domain inside the main domain, not a subdomain but a domain. So i tried it again and it gave me authorized failed nevertheless i have deleted all certificates and all code.txt and responses and started over. So what should i do ?
Certsage worked fine, but i am still getting the not safe on my android phone from google chrome with a https bared in red. How can we solve that?
The web server for the domain f1ian.com is still serving the short chain without the intermediate certificate "ISRG Root X1" signed by "DST Root CA X3". Have you got the proper certificate chain? Did you apply that to the web server?

It is very common with GoDaddy to have webroot directories for other domain names inside of
public_html. You need to put a copy of
certsage.php inside of the webroot directory for the other domain name as well. For example, let's say you have
anotherdomain.com and its webroot directory is
public_html/anotherdomain. You would put a copy of
public_html/anotherdomain then modify line 16 of that
certsage.php from this:
$dataDirectory = "../CertSage";
$dataDirectory = "../../CertSage";
That way CertSage will look two levels up for its data directory instead of one level up as the default. You would then visit
anotherdomain.com/certsage.php and proceed in the usual way. Note that once you acquire a certificate for any domain name, you should install it before proceeding to acquire a certificate for a different domain name since CertSage will overwrite the
certificate.key in its data directory each time it acquires a certificate for you.
GoDaddy serves the short chain by default now. I need to test with the long chain.
i don't know how you got that info, because all i know about the certificate stuff is how to set it and redirect nevertheless i am a web developer but with freelance experience not corporate
that would not work, because i already set the certificate and it needs the key also
should i paste all 3 certificate that i get ? because i pasted the first only
That is the same certificate (based on the key your have) in use now.
All that changed is the chain.
So it should work.
If you try to use the "long chain", paste the first certificate in the Certificate box and the last two certificates in the CA bundle box. cPanel will automatically pair the key with the certificate.
