Enabling HTTP/2 support (Ubuntu 16.04.04/LAMP)

Apache Let's Encrypt Server Optimization WordPress Ubuntu 16.04

Hi there!

I'd like to enable the HTTP/2 protocol for my WordPress based website, on a LAMP stack. I see there's a tutorial for NGINX here in DO's tutorials, but can't get a comprehensive one for Apache. Browsing around, I understand there's a solution installing Apache through Ondrej Launchpad PPA, but I'm not sure whether this is fine on a production server.

Any comment, advice or solution very much welcomed! ; )

My best,

The instructions here will help you with that.

Once you have an SSL installed you will need to update the WordPress URL

  • Thanks Jason, but I'm wondering if we're not confusing HTTP/2 and HTTPS here... Although it's strongly recommended to run the HTTP/2 protocol with an SSL certificate, I'm not quite sure installing Certbot (already did time ago through this tutorial) automatically triggers that protocol. Am I wrong?
