Certificate authority integration, maintenance updates (stable/90+91) – 31.05.2016
Update stable/90 had been pulled due to loading issues of folders while server is listening to a non-protonet address. Servers already updated are showing “Current version: unknown (unknown)”until being updated again.
|Easier deployment of a dynamic domain with automatic certificate creation using Let’s Encrypt
So far setting up a Protonet server with an own internet domain was difficult, when it came to the steps to buy the correct certificate and put it in the right format and place.
Using the new console script “letsencrypt” makes things easy now: After you’ve run it successfully, it will create a new certificate on a monthly base. This certificate is valid for 3 month.
Script is using the email adress of first user in SOUL
During script execution connection to SOUL is interrupted.
*Let’s Encrypt is a so called certificate authority. This is providing trustworthy certificates: The usage of these certificates is only posisble, if you can prove accessibility of the website you requested the certificate for. Let’s Encrypt is testing this by starting a specific webserver on the target system, on which a test file must be reachable.
