letsencrypt for cPanel/WHM


First of all I’m a huge fan of Let’s Encrypt.  Letsencrypt team has released a public beta version of ACME client, so we can obtain valid, trusted SSL certificates for our domains for free.

Unfortunately letsencrypt client does not support cPanel but same time we will be able to download certificates from their server and then we have to install it manually.  So, I have developed a  WHM plugin, which would help cPanel administrators to install and  setup letsencrypt  on cPanel/WHM servers very easily.


$> /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/git clone https://github.com/Prajithp/letsencrypt-cpanel.git cd letsencrypt-cpanel 

$> ./install.sh

Please note that rate limits are currently in place for the Let’s Encrypt service, so you may get some warnings and errors while requesting for new certificates.
