"Installing​ ​an​ ​SSL​ ​Certificate​ ​on​ ​CentOS​ ​Running​ ​Apache (Let's Encrypt Project Instructions)"

In this tutorial, you will learn how to install an SSL Certificate issued by Let’s Encrypt on a CentOS Linux system running the Apache web server.

You will:

  • Start out by installing Apache with mod_ssl.
  • From there, you’ll add firewall rules to allow HTTP and HTTPS traffic.
  • Next, you’ll enable the EPEL repository by installing the epel-release package. That will enable you to install the Certbot application and the Apache Certbot plugin.
  • You will then create and install an SSL certificate using the Certbot utility.
  • Finally, you’ll automate the certificate renewal process so that your site is never without a valid SSL certificate.
