Wilcard Guide for Mac OS

Hi Folks,

@JeffTheRocker created this great guide for Mac OS

I used it for one website, but now need to add a wildcard for another. Has anyone done this yet ?

Here’s what I have done so far.

  1. Update Cakebrew
  2. Updated certbot inside cakebrew (0.22.0)
  3. tried to run the cert creation.

sudo ./certbot-auto --server https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory -d *.myserver.com --manual --preferred-challenges dns-01 certonly

response was:

WARNING: certbot-auto support for this macOS is DEPRECATED!
Please visit certbot.eff.org to learn how to download a version of
Certbot that is packaged for your system. While an existing version
of certbot-auto may work currently, we have stopped supporting updating
system packages for your system. Please switch to a packaged version
as soon as possible.

So I’m stuck now as the certbot.eff.org just suggests a hombrew install (same as Cakebrew)


While certbot is the recommended software for LE Certificate, you can still use other clients in the list:
You must choose one of the V2 API completable clients for wildcard ssl, you also need to use DNS validation. please do not forget to issue cert for both your wildcard and root domain(since wildcard doesn’t include your root domain.

Good luck.
