What client to generate a certificate for Windows server 2012 and Apache


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is: ehonissa.com

I ran this command: N/A

It produced this output: N/A

My operating system is (include version): Windows server 2012 R2

My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4 for Windows

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: I host my own server

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): N/A

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): N/A
What Let’s Encrypt client can I use to generate my certificate on my server?

Deploy HTTPS for our domain

I do believe there is a rather large list of clients on the main website—take your pick.

I prefer to use acme-tiny for fact that it is a truly tiny client which is easy to audit and understand—providing me with much needed trust. It lacks the glamour of the official client, but makes up for it in siplicity.

Of course, what client you run, will depend on what your software has to offer in terms of software. For instance, if you have python installed, you can just run this script.


hi valmeras

i have written a couple of articles on how to request certificates on windows machines



ACMESharp and WinSimple are good windows clients


Thank you. My problem was that the windows clients were looking for IIS.
But I have Apache.
So, I used ZeroSSL and it fixed my problem.


acme.sh can run on Windows with Cygwin.
