How do I install TLS on my droplet if I have Serverpilot?
Hi, apologies in advance for my general lack of knowledge about this stuff.
I have a Wordpress blog on a DigitalOcean droplet. I installed Serverpilot with this guide: https://serverpilot.io/docs/how-to-connect-a-server-to-serverpilot
Then I installed WP by following this one: https://serverpilot.io/docs/how-to-install-wordpress-on-digitalocean
So that’s worked all fine. It’s just a personal blog site so I don’t need anything crazy.
However, now I’d like to add a TLS/SSL certificate to my site. I found this guide from DO: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-apache-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-16-04
But, when I went to start it, I realized that my droplet doesn’t actually have the apache package! I think because of having Serverpilot, if I do dpkg -l | grep apache, it just returns “apache-sp”, which is ServerPilot’s version.
So I’m guessing following that DO TLS guide won’t work, right? For example, I don’t even have a /var/www directory (like you would if you have legit normal apache).
To be honest I don’t really understand why I even have Serverpilot. I just want Wordpress, which it seems like you can install without using SP, right? It seems like to get TLS working with Serverpilot, I might have to pay? Whereas it would be free if I just followed the DO guide, right?
thanks for any tips or advice!
