This is a big technical development for me. My web site you are reading this on is now using automated SSL certificates provided freely by LetsEncrypt.org. I’ve been aiming at integrating these services for a long time and it’s a dream come true for me.
Special thanks to:
- The makers of the certbot-haproxy plugin
- Daniel at Stackoverflow.com for this post that helped me adapt WordPress for working behind HAProxy
if ($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO'] == 'https') $_SERVER['HTTPS']='on';
- And of Course to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and their Let’s Encrypt Project
