Renewing the certbot HTTPS

 sudo ./certbot-auto --apache
 # (Remember to enter 1, then 2 in the menu choices.)
 sudo service apache2 stop
 sudo service apache2 start

Add HTTPS to Curriepedia!

  1. https://letsencrypt.org/getting-started/
  2. https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/debianjessie-apache
 sudo apt-get remove certbot
 cd ~
 sudo wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto
 sudo chmod a+x certbot-auto
 sudo ./certbot-auto --apache
 # choose this option:
 # 2: Redirect - Make all requests redirect to secure HTTPS access.
 sudo service apache2 restart
 # Automating renewal after 15 June 2019:
 # From Here: https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/debianjessie-apache
 
 crontab -e
 # paste this to the bottom:
 0 0,12 * * * python -c 'import random; import time; time.sleep(random.random() * 3600)' && sudo ~/.certbot-auto renew 

However, the above renew command doesn't seem to work. The explicit commands to renew were:

 ~/./certbot-auto renew
 sudo systemctl reload apache2

But if we analyze the result:

We see it didn't work.

Details of renewing HTTPS

The correct way to renew, it seems, is to run:

 sudo ./certbot-auto --apache

Here is the output if we run that command instead:

 We were unable to find a vhost with a ServerName or Address of curriepedia.org.
 Which virtual host would you like to choose?

 Please choose whether or not to redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS, removing HTTP access.

 1: No redirect - Make no further changes to the webserver configuration.
 2: Redirect - Make all requests redirect to secure HTTPS access. Choose this for
 new sites, or if you're confident your site works on HTTPS. You can undo this
 change by editing your web server's configuration.

 Congratulations! You have successfully enabled https://curriepedia.org

 IMPORTANT NOTES:
  - Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at:
    /etc/letsencrypt/live/curriepedia.org/fullchain.pem
    Your key file has been saved at:
    /etc/letsencrypt/live/curriepedia.org/privkey.pem
    Your cert will expire on 2019-06-15. To obtain a new or tweaked
    version of this certificate in the future, simply run certbot-auto
    again with the "certonly" option. To non-interactively renew *all*
    of your certificates, run "certbot-auto renew"
  - Your account credentials have been saved in your Certbot
    configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a
    secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will
    also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Certbot so
    making regular backups of this folder is ideal.
