AcmeFetch

Build Status

Version: #VERSION#

Date: #DATE#

AcmeFetch is a thin wrapper arount he ACME::Protocol library to fetch and maintain ssl certificates using the the services of Let's Encrypt!

Setup

To build AcmeFetch you require the perl, openssl and gcc packages on your system.

On RedHat you get them with:

yum install perl-core openssl-devel gcc unzip

On Ubuntu / Debian with:

apt-get install perl libssl-dev gcc unzip make

Get a copy of AcmeFetch from https://github.com/oetiker/AcmeFetch/releases and unpack it into your scratch directory and cd there.

./configure --prefix=$HOME/opt/acmefetch
make

Configure will check if all requirements are met and give hints on how to fix the situation if something is missing.

Any missing perl modules will be built and installed into the prefix directory. Your system perl will NOT be affected by this.

To install the application, just run

make install

Configuration

Take a look at the etc/acmefetch.cfg.dist file for inspiration.

Documentation

First make sure you understand how letsencrypt certificates work by reading https://letsencrypt.org/howitworks/technology/

Then read the acmefetch documentation in the doc directory and finally take some inspiration from the sample configuration file provided.

Enjoy!
