Question

Adding an SSL Certificate to the One-Click WordPress Image

Greetings!

I’ve recently setup a WordPress using the One-Click image that DigitalOcean offers. I already have my domain pointed to it but I’m having an issue in finding the right information on how to add an SSL certificate to it.

Both my domain and SSL Certificate are from Namecheap as I got them in the GitHub Student Pack. Note that on the Namecheap Control Panel the SSL Certificate is PositiveSSL.

How would I go about creating and then adding my SSL Certificate?

For those having the same issue, a lot of the docs in here have outdated info about updating certbot after you’ve already set up the droplet. You can set up certbot as part of the droplet creation process, but if you elect out of it, it can be really hard to find information about how to add it after the fact.

However, the detailed instructions (just a few commands) can be found here: https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/ubuntufocal-apache

If you’re running into Cloudflare SSL handshake failures, it’s probably because your droplet doesn’t have an SSL certificate, and following those steps solved the issue for me.

The CSR part is useful.

It is easiest way https://certbot.eff.org/#ubuntuxenial-apache . I just made it at one click installer. Tutorial link that I found.
