Overview

The Let's Encrypt™ plugin allows you to automatically provision cPanel accounts with Let's Encrypt SSL certificates for sites that do not already have valid CA-signed SSL certificates.

Notes:

  • We introduced the script that loads this plugin in cPanel & WHM version 58.0.17.
  • This plugin only integrates with the AutoSSL feature, which generates SSL certificates for cPanel accounts. It does not generate hostname certificates for your system's services.

Installation

To install the plugin, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the command line via SSH as the root user.
  2. Run the following command:

    /scripts/install_lets_encrypt_autossl_provider

To disable and uninstall the Let's Encrypt plugin, run the scripts/uninstall_lets_encrypt_autossl_provider command.

Configuration

To select Let's Encrypt as an AutoSSL provider, use WHM's  Manage AutoSSL interface (WHM >> Home >> SSL/TLS >> Manage AutoSSL).

Warning:

Let's Encrypt imposes significant rate and domain limits. We strongly recommend that you read the Manage AutoSSL documentation and familiarize yourself with these limits before you use the Let's Encrypt provider for AutoSSL.
