    How to encrypt your sites with Let’s Encrypt on Turnkey Linux LAMP 14.1

    Mileage may vary..


    Add the repo:
    vi /etc/apt/sources.list
    “deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main”

    Get the Certbot:
    cd && wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto
    chmod a+x certbot-auto

    Get an SSL with the domain “cloudmonkey.co.uk” and the site domain “www.cloudmonkey.co.uk”:
    cd && ./certbot-auto certonly -d cloudmonkey.co.uk -d www.cloudmonkey.co.uk

    Set Cron to check for a new SSL twice per day:
    crontab -e
    0 0 * * * cd && ./certbot-auto renew –quiet –no-self-upgrade
    0 12 * * * cd && ./certbot-auto renew –quiet –no-self-upgrade

    Edit your sites virtual host to add:
    vi /etc/apache2/sites-available/www.cloudmonkey.co.uk.conf

    <VirtualHost *:443>
    DocumentRoot *
    ServerName www.cloudmonkey.co.uk
    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/cloudmonkey.co.uk/cert.pem
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/cloudmonkey.co.uk/privkey.pem
    SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/cloudmonkey.co.uk/fullchain.pem
    And lastly restart Apache:
    service apache2 restart
