How to install a wildcard SSL certificate in Ubuntu 20.04 for (WORDPRESS MULTISTE)

Hello, I am new to ubuntu. I need help.

I have created an installation of Wordpress Multisite, I need that the subsites have SSL certificate. My Main site has an Active SSL certificate https://viticlic.com/. When creating the https://demo1.viticlic.com/ subsites, they do not include the SSL certificate. I have looked for information in these corners and I cannot install the SSL.

I followed this [GUIDE]

  1. The first time I did not recognize DNS verification.

EXAMPLE

Please deploy a DNS TXT record under the name
_acme-challenge.viticlic.com with the following value:
J50GNXkhGmKCfn-0LQJcknVGtPEAQ_U_WajcLXgqWqo
  1. After a few days I tried again and I get this error.
E: Package 'python-virtualenv' has no installation candidate

I already installed Python with this guide but it kept giving me an error.

I hope you can help me.

Beforehand thank you very much.

Hi there @munozgustavo,

It looks like that you’ve added an A record for _acme-challenge.viticlic.com to point to your IP address.

But instead of your IP address, you need to add a TXT record to point to the random string provided to you by the certbot command.

You can check your DNS here:

Let me know how it goes!
