How to update doomsteaddiner.net SSL certificate
« on: June 24, 2016, 07:17:29 PM »
This will only apply to those with CPanel credentials for "doomsteaddiner.net", and is here for reference in case I kick the bucket.

We are on our third 3-monthly SSL Certificate now.

If you have a hosted website with CPanel and  SSL capability, which basically requires a fixed IP Address and usually requires extra fees, you can do the same thing for your site.

How to update doomsteaddiner.net SSL certificate

Go to https://sslforfree.com which is one of several portals for LetsEncrypt.
Enter "doomsteaddiner.net" in the box and click Create.
Click on Manual Verification.
Click on Manually Verify Domain.
Download the 2 token files.
In a new browser tab, go to https://doomsteaddiner.net:2083 - the CPanel portal, and log in.
Using CPanel's File Manager upload feature,
    upload the two token files to DD's  /public_html/.well-known/acme-challenge/   folder.
On the SSLForFree tab,
    click on the two links in section 5 to see the 2 new tokens are found OK,
    click on the Download SSL Certificates button, this will display 3 boxes for Certificate, Private key, and CA_Certificate,
    copy and paste the 3 files into a plain text editor and save them somewhere secure as a backup.
On the CPanel tab, go to Home > Security > SSL/TLS > Manage SSL Sites > Update Certificate,
you will see 3 boxes that correspond to the 3 boxes on the SSLForFree browser tab.
Copy-paste the contents of the 3 boxes, make sure the Enable SNI is checked, click on Install Certificate.

To check everything is working,
go to https://doomsteaddiner.net/forum/index.php?board=79.0 ,
for Firefox (probably very similar for other browsers):
click on the padlock symbol in the browser's Address Box,
click on the arrow,
click on More Information,
click on View Certificate,
check the Begins On field is today's date.
