Bash script to generate and install Let's Encrypt certificate for your websites on your free/paid ServerPilot account. Currently, the only easy way to add SSL to your ServerPilot-powered websites is by subscribing to the paid plan.

  • Copy sple.sh to your /usr/local/bin folder
    cd /usr/local/bin && wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lesaff/serverpilot-letsencrypt/master/sple.sh
    
  • Run sudo chmod +x sple.sh to make it executable

How to use

  • Run sple.sh anywhere from your console as root
  • Follow the on-screen instructions

Why root?

This script updates/create script in the /etc/nginx-sp that requires root access

IF things go wrong

  • Check /var/log/letsencrypt for detailed error messages
  • ssh to your sp server as root
    cd /etc/nginx-sp/vhosts.d
  • List all the ssl config files
    ls *ssl*
  • Delete the <appname>.ssl.conf that is causing problem

Restart nginx sudo service nginx-sp restart

Schedule auto renewal

Add the following to your crontab (crontab -e)

For Ubuntu 14.04
