I’m looking to generate and SSL certificates using certbot in manual mode and then send these to my web hosting provider. I just need some more detailed instructions of how to do this as outlined in the Manual section of the certbot user guide: https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html#manual
My domain is: www.williamorme.com
I ran this command: n/a Still trying to get certbot installed for manual use only
It produced this output: n/a
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): I don’t know. My hosting provider says:
“If you wish you can get it [SSL certificate] from anyone and send it to us and we will install it for you for free because we don’t provide SSH access, but you must do all the preparation work yourself which will be easy if you have good technical knowledge with the certificate installation.
Please send the certificate in PFX file includes the certificate and the key and the password.”
My hosting provider is: internetse.co.uk
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): I don’t know. I have a Mac I can run a Terminal session.
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): I’m using wordpress as provided by internetse to edit my website.
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): not dowloaded or installed yet.
