Generate and manage SSL certificates for your WordPress sites (or networks) for free with this Let's Encrypt client.
You can download the latest version from the WordPress plugin repository. If you prefer to install it from Github, make sure to run
composer install before using it in order to download the necessary dependencies.
Your WordPress site needs to have the
openssl PHP extensions installed. You also need to ensure that WordPress may write the following locations:
- the directory that will contain the keys and certificates; by default this will be
../letsencrypt(relative to the site's root directory); this location can be overwritten to any other location by using the constant
- the directory that will contain challenges to verify ownership of a domain; this will be
/.well-known(relative to the site's root directory); furthermore you need to ensure that this directory is publicly readable
