Web server certificate installation#

We are using certbot using Let's Encrypt certificates to write this documentation. Certbot recommends using snap to install certbot and obtain certificates. The following instructions are for Ubuntu 20; however, any platform supporting snap should work.

  • Backup the /etc/certs folder on your server
  • Install snap: sudo snap install core; sudo snap refresh core
  • Remove any certbot OS packages. This varies across distributions. For Ubuntu: sudo apt remove certbot
  • Install certbot: sudo snap install --classic certbot
  • Issue certificate: certbot --apache -d fqdn_of_Gluu_server
  • Full certificate chain and key are available in: /etc/letsencrypt/live/ location.
  • Move the cert and key to /etc/certs and name them httpd.crt and httpd.key respectively.
  • Reboot your server
