Let's Encrypt Wildcard Certificate Certbot

Дусал нэвтэрхий толь-с

Introduction

Let's Encrypt supports wildcard certificate via ACMEv2 using the DNS-01 challenge, which began on March 13, 2018. Certbot, its client, provides --manual option to carry it out. I sincerely appreciate them.

I write how I generated my wildcard certificate with Certbot. It was a very simple task : ) All what was necessary in addition is to add a TXT record specified by Certbot to the DNS server.

  • Caution: As it is necessary to update Let's Encrypt's certificate every 90 days, a new TXT record is required at every renewal.

Body Environment

   Certbot: >0.32.0


Tutorial

The command is like this:

# certbot certonly --manual --preferred-challenges dns --server https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory --manual-public-ip-logging-ok -d '*.<your.domain>' -d <your.domain>

Make sure to quote *.<your.domain> to avoid the error "no matches found: *.<your.domain>".

  • Note: the order of -d *.<your.domain> and -d <your.domain> didn't seem to matter.

Here is the comparison of certonly options with a single certificate:

- --webroot -w <dir-path>
+ --manual --preferred-challenges dns --server https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory --manual-public-ip-logging-ok

Besides, the detail of its command line options is here.

Then, the command replies:
