Zero configuration Let's Encrypt under Virtualmin

Submitted by christophe on Sat, 10/09/2016 - 09:50

It has been there for a while under Virtualmin, but I was hesitating on using the GUI configuration of Let's Encrypt from Virtualmin on an existing manual configuration. Let's Encrypt does not allow you to make any change afterwards, yielding this error :

Request failed : The native Let's Encrypt client was used previously on this system, and must be used for all future certificate requests.

Be ready for the opening of free ninety-day lifetime certificates !

The objective of Let?s Encrypt and the ACME protocol is to make it possible to set up an HTTPS server and have it automatically obtain a browser-trusted certificate, without any human intervention. This is accomplished by running a certificate management agent on the web server.
