How to setup SSL


I have installed Web Call Server droplet, but I can not find a way to configure access to it via HTTPS. Can you tell me how to do this?

Hi @tinyazuresquid,

The best way would be to use certbot. Depending on your Distro(Ubuntu/CentOS), you’ll need to use different commands:


  1. apt install certbot


  1. yum install certbot

Afterthat you can run the certbot command and follow the steps to generate a new SSL.

If there is a web server on the same server run

  1. sudo certbot certonly --apache


  1. sudo certbot certonly --nginx

If there isn’t anything installed on the server, run

  1. sudo certbot certonly --standalone
