Hi @upendrajpr

if you want to use a Letsencrypt certificate, then start with the basics.

Then install a client.

Then try to use that client.

There is a template of #help - that’s very helpful:

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:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

Don't. Seriously, don't. Certbot has a mess of dependencies which will be hard (or impossible) to satisfy on RHEL 6. Try the much simpler and more lightweight client of acme.sh instead.

My domain is : rtijaipur.cag.gov.in
My web server apache httpd
operating system is RHEL 6.5
I can login to a root shell on my machine : YES
I am NOT provided any control panel for root shell. I use putty
Till now I don’t have any client

The site

says, that

Certbot-Auto should work with RHEL 6.5.

when I execute the command “yum -y install epel-release” enable the EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) repository no action has been performed. Is it necessary to execute successfully for
next command “wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto

I am trying to execute the command in this order:

yum -y install epel-release

#yum search certbot

yum info certbot (for detail info)

#yum install -y python2-certbot-apache

certbot --apache -d rtijaipur.cag.gov.in

enter info 1. email: rtijaipur@cag.gov.in 2. A 3. 1 4. 2

find /etc/letsencrypt/live

curl https://rtijaipur.cag.gov.in for confirmation

vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf



SSLProtocol all -SSLv2

SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 -SSLv3



apachectl configtest

syntex ok

systemctl restart httpd

#curl https://rtijaipur.cag.gov.in
#certbot renew

crontab -e

comment #to renew ssl certs daily
0 0 * * * /usr/bin/ certbot renew &>/var/log/certbot.cronlog
#crontab -l
#service start certbot-renew.servic
#service status certbot-renew.servic

for yum -y install epel-release
the message I got “No package epel-release available error: nothing to do”
for yum install -y python2-certbot-apache
the message I got "No package python2-certbot-apache available error: nothing to do "

Or follow the instructions Juergen linked to--no part of them involve using yum in any way. But seriously, don't use certbot.
