Secure your domain with Free SSL/TLS Certificates (Centos 7)
Installing git & Let’s Encrypt

Let’s Encrypt is a new Certificate Authority:
It’s free, automated, and open.

Code:
yum install git mod_ssl openssl
git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt
cd letsencrypt
./letsencrypt-auto --help

Creating a Certificate for your domain

You need to turn off apache before creating a certificate or you will get something like

Quote:The program httpd (process ID XXXX) is already listening on TCP port 80. This will prevent us from binding to that port. Please stop the httpd program temporarily and then try again.

Replace example.com by your domain.tld

Code:
service httpd stop
./letsencrypt-auto certonly --standalone -d example.com -d www.example.com
service httpd start

Adding a Custom Entry on Virtual Host

On Sentora Panel go to Admin -> Module Admin -> Apache Config
On "Override a Virtual Host Setting" Select Vhost for your domain and add a "Custom Entry" like bellow

Don't miss to replace example.com and example_com by your domain tld

Code:
#Redirect permanent / https://example.com/
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:443>
ServerName example.com
ServerAlias  www.example.com
ServerAdmin zadmin@localhost
DocumentRoot "/var/sentora/hostdata/zadmin/public_html/example_com"
php_admin_value suhosin.executor.func.blacklist "passthru, show_source, shell_exec, system, pcntl_exec, popen, pclose, proc_open, proc_nice, proc_terminate, proc_get_status, proc_close, leak, apache_child_terminate, posix_kill, posix_mk$

SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/example.com/chain.pem
#Header always add Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=15768000; includeSubDomains; preload"


Save Vhost.


Wait on daemon update or restart it manually and restart apache

Code:
php -q /etc/sentora/panel/bin/daemon.php

Forced HTTPS?

Uhhhh.. Is it instantaneous if it works? How do I force HTTPS? I'm on Ubuntu, but I assume the commands are just slightly different?  Exclamation

RE: Secure your domain with Free SSL/TLS Certificates (Centos 7)
This procedure should be performed for each domain of my server? for each domain should be created a certificate?
