Let’s Encrypt is not yet available as a Debian package. Though you can try out the preview release by getting it from GitHub with the following commands:

  • git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/lets-encrypt-preview.git
  • cd lets-encrypt-preview
  • ./bootstrap/ubuntu.sh
  • virtualenv --no-site-packages -p python2 venv
  • ./venv/bin/pip install -r requirements.txt
  • ./venv/bin/letsencrypt --help

I have install Ubuntu 12.04, how to?
