SSL at last

SSL at last

Well, I’ve finally got round to installing a proper SSL certificate, courtesy of SSL For Free. Needs regenerating every 3 months, of course…

Just as a reminder to myself, the process is not exactly daunting…:

  • Go to SSL For Free to generate a new certificate.
  • Validate domain ownership by FTP (same pw as cPanel).
  • When verified, it will generate details for Private Key and Certificate.
  • On cPanel, go to SSL/TLS
  • Go to KEY and paste the Private Key contents into “Upload a New Private Key”, giving it a suitable description for identification. Save it.
  • Go to CRT and paste the Certificate contents into “Upload a New Certificate”, giving it a suitable description for identification. Save it.
  • Back on cPanel, go to SSL/TLS Status .
  • Select the right Certificate (if more then one showing) and then click “Install Certificate” (at the bottom of the page).
