How to install free SSL (Let’s encrypt) Certificate on Debian server

Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and openCertificate Authority. The goal is to implemented the certificate on a web server. I used a standard Debian 7 server with webmin installed. Webmin is a web interface to manage your server. You can find more info here.

First connect to your Webmin interface (usually port 1000):

Click on the left menu and go to webmin configuration:

Click on « SSL Encryption »:

Select the last tab « Let’s encrypt » and enter your full hostmane, like: « server1.example.be » (whithout quote). Select the options below and click on « Request Certificate »:

With the menu, expand the « Servers » items and click on « Apache Webserver »

Select your default Virtual Server with the support of encryption (by default it is the 443 port):

Select « SSL Options » icon and enter the paths below:

Click « Save »  and then « Apply Changes », the apache service will restart and you have now your free certificate on your web server:

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
