If you are using the CWP7 project for your hosting needs, managing SSL certificates and Let’s Encrypt can be a seamless process. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to help you efficiently manage your SSL certificates in CWP7.
Step 1: Accessing the SSL Management Interface
To manage SSL certificates in CWP7, you need to login to your CWP7 control panel. Once logged in, navigate to the SSL Management interface.
Step 2: Generating a CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
Before obtaining an SSL certificate, you need to generate a CSR to complete the certificate signing process. In the SSL Management interface, you will find the option to generate a CSR. Fill in the required information, such as domain name, organization details, and contact information.
Step 3: Obtaining an SSL Certificate
With your CSR ready, it’s time to obtain an SSL certificate. CWP7 offers seamless integration with Let’s Encrypt, a trusted and widely-used certificate authority. In the SSL Management interface, navigate to the Let’s Encrypt Certificate option.
Click on the “Obtain New SSL Certificate” button and select the domain for which you generated the CSR. CWP7 will automatically validate the domain and request the SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt.
Step 4: Installing the SSL Certificate
Once you have obtained the SSL certificate, it’s time to install it on your domain. In the SSL Management interface, navigate to the “Installed SSL Certificates” tab.
Click on the “Install” button next to the certificate you wish to install. CWP7 will automatically install the certificate, along with the necessary CA Bundle. This step ensures that your website is accessible via HTTPS and displays the green padlock symbol.
Step 5: Managing SSL Certificates
CWP7 allows you to easily manage your SSL certificates. In the SSL Management interface, you can view the status, expiry date, and other details of your installed certificates. You can also easily renew and revoke certificates if needed.
Managing SSL certificates and Let’s Encrypt in CWP7 is a straightforward process that helps ensure the security and trustworthiness of your website. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily generate, obtain, and install SSL certificates for your domains.
