Step by step guide on using Let's Encrypt to implement SSL (https)


#1

Hi

Just wonder there is any step-by-step guide on using Let’s Encrypt to setup a SSL (https) access of a website in IIS ?!

Thanks

There are not really many steps:

Here you have a simple explanation:
https://letsencrypt.org/howitworks/

Alternatively here are the big docs: https://letsencrypt.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html
But as far as I understand these are mainly for contributors of the LE client.


Edit: Sorry, just note that you mentioned IIS. Currently there is no support for IIS in the official LE client, but you can manually get a cert and use a guide for IIS to let it work there.
