Wildcard certificates on CentOS 6?



I want to get a wildcard certificate and renew it automatically. I have CentOS 6 and it seems that there’s only certbot-auto client for this OS (https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/centos6-apache). And the manual (https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html#dns-plugins) says “These plugins… cannot currently be installed with certbot-auto”.

Is there some other possibilty for renewing a wildcard certificate on CentOS 6 with apache?



The “only available” only means certbot on centos 6 can’t get wildcard certificate.

However, you can always use third party scripts (like acme.sh)

As of now, to renew the certificate automatically, your domain must be with a supported domain (DNS) registrar (With API access) (you will need to check the script for supported list of registrars)

Thank you


Thank you! acme.sh worked like a charm!
