Question

Setting up SSL Cert for Apache2 on Debian 10

Im confused, can i use the ssl cert generated by digital ocean to setup port 443 access to my droplet or do i need to bring one in from outside? The section i’m looking at says “Certificates for Load Balancers and Spaces” so maybe this isn’t what i was looking for. But is there another section that generates or provides ssl certs within Digital Ocean? I’ve looked at this D.O. tut but I need more than a self-signed key. (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-a-ssl-certificate-on-apache-for-debian-8). Thanks

Hi @sunbutter,

The best way would be using Let’s Encrypt and to be more precise, certbot. I’ll recommend checking out the following article :

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-apache-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-18-04

I know it’s for Ubuntu but the principle for Debian should be the same.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
