I’ve been trying to get the Let’s Encrupt client to install however I think the problem is that it’s not addressing the actual Apache server with my approved domains.
Server configurations and the like are way over my head.
The start up info in the welcome email and the user guide seem fairly straight forward but the results with Git Bash were not successful.
Docker install didn’t seem to work either.
Git for Windows has been installed.
Running Win 8.1
My web host uses Apache.
I contacted my web host to see if he had any input.
He believes that I need a VPS set up and even then it would require me manually setting everything up.
My web host also indicates that access to a server terminal is limited
This is also a shared hosting account if that’s any clue.
I’ve also been scouring the community board looking for clues but again the lingo is all Greek to me.
Basically, I would like to know the proper way to connect to the Plesk CP.
I’d appreciate any replies in the simplest of terms as configuring the server to work with Let’s Encrypt is more complicated to me that initially thought.
Preferrably step by step instructions would be helpful.
I’m hoping to figure this out as Let’s Encrypt is an important addition to web design and development.
It would be excellent to be able to offer the SSL certificates to others I’m building sites for.
I do have access to the Plesk backend and I’ve seen where SSL certificates can be enabled but I don’t think it applies to Let’s Encrypt client.
I’m lacking the knowledge of how to properly apply the Let’s Encrypt client to the Apache server.
Feel free to ask me for any clarification.
