    Assuming a single site Apache host, the following should get you SSL’d

    Get the package:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install python-letsencrypt-apache

    Setup the SSL Cert:
    sudo letsencrypt –apache -d track.datacentremonkey.com
    ( For multiple domains: sudo letsencrypt –apache -d example.com -d www.example.com)

    Test your SSL: https://track.datacentremonkey.com


    Manual Renewal:
    sudo letsencrypt renew

    Auto Renewal:
    Add the following to your crontab, to check every Monday at 1am:
    00 1 * * 1 /usr/bin/letsencrypt renew >> /var/log/le-renew.log

    *If the cert is set to expire within the next 31 days, the above will update the cert prior to expiration.
