SSL on 7.3

So, for its and giggles - i installed ssl on my centos 7 using letsencrypt - a free ssl setup. Only had to install letsencrypt and then change 1 line in the header.inc.php page and it works perfectly - so far.

 

I guess I bring this up because I know ssl certs can be a little pricey. So I tried letsencrypt and will vouch for it. Screw paying for ssl certs when you can get em for free.

Can you also tell the procedure?

Which certificate to download and how to install?

I am running my own dedicated server (at home) with CentOs 7. This is the url with the instructions that I followed to install letsencrypt: https://digitz.org/blog/lets-encrypt-ssl-centos-7-setup/

 

and if you go to cvp71.com, you should notice no security warnings.

 The free method works fine for most.

Showing the supplied certification logo was what I wanted. Makes the site trustworthy, or the illusion of it.. lol

 

I went ahead and purchased mine and had the cert request, approved and installed very quickly using this site, https://www.ssls.com/ which made the process "so simple a cave man could do it" really!

This is actually how we're handling SSL for Chat+ (both for BoonEx subscriptions and at Zarconia).

 Did you change your header.inc.php file?

Did you do change the .htaccess?

 

Just after, 

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

add this and save.

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://yoursite.com/$1 [R,L]

that was it, thank you :)

same here using the FREE SSL described... but not without issue.   It appears you can only set .domain or www.domain - but not both and I had to do a fix in .htaccess to insure it would default to the SSL URL.  On

a shared server (the best I have used in  many many years .. crocweb.com ) and install of certificates was automated ( no brainer ) via cPanel.

 

If you use do not use <!-- //--> or "barf"...

 

 

<!----------------------- the fix below ---------------------------------//-->
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.myneighbors\.net[NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://myneighbors.net/$1 [L,R=301]

<!----------------------- the fix end ---------------------------------//-->

Now - please keep in mind - these are self-signed certificates - which would be great for the Chat+ server. But for an actual site - you do not have the trusted backing that some users may look for - and may not use your site because it does not have that validation.

 Despite:
LetsEncrypt is backed by  Facebook, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Mozilla, Cisco Systems, and Akamai to name a few.  https://letsencrypt.org/
Current sponsors:  https://letsencrypt.org/sponsors/

HTTPS uses the transport layer security or secure sockets layer protocols to secure websites in two important ways.

First, it encrypts communications passing between visitors and the Web server so they can't be read or modified by anyone who may be monitoring the connection.
Second, in the case of bare bones certificates, it cryptographically proves that a server belongs to the same organization or person with control over the domain, rather than an imposter posing as that organization.
(Extended validation certificates go a step beyond by authenticating the identity of the organization or individual.)

There is also StartSSL with Free & reasonably priced paid versions, but looking at both, -- LetsEncrypt on the free side of life offers a great bargain and a great way to insure your user base that all communication "is" encrypted.

You just need to update the URL in /inc/header.inc.php and then clear the cache folders. If you need more help, feel free to send me a PM. No charge.

Not sure that I have done anything correct. I changed to "https://socialxusa.com/" and cleared cache and all I get is a broken screen with blue wording and the links don't work.

hello you can check here 

https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html

 

 

No SSL certificates were found on socialxusa.com. Make sure that the name resolves to the correct server and that the SSL port (default is 443) is open on your server's firewall.

Most hosting plans offer SSL for free (usually through Let's Encrypt).

people, the easiest way is to go to [header.inc.php] file [its in [inc] ] folder, and add a "s" to the http for your site name [its at first few lines on top], and save . you are done.
