Installing SSL Certificate on your ERPNext Instance

You will need to have SSL certificate installed on your instance to keep users of your system safe online. In Frappe Framework or ERPNext, this is a simple process.

Prerequisites

  1. You need to have a DNS Multitenant Setup
  2. Your site should be accessible via a valid domain
  3. You need root permissions on your server
  4. You need a valid certificate generated through a trusted Certificate Authority or a Self-Signed Certificate.

Steps to Install SSL

Install snapd on your machine

sudo apt install snapd

Update snapd

sudo snap install core; sudo snap refresh core

Remove existing installations of certbot

sudo apt-get remove certbot

Install certbot

sudo snap install --classic certbot

sudo ln -s /snap/bin/certbot /usr/bin/certbot

For one-step automatic ssl installation

sudo certbot --nginx

If you prefer manual installation,. do the following:

sudo certbot certonly --nginx

Certbot packages on your system come with a cron job or systemd timer that will renew your certificates automatically before they expire. So no further steps are required. If necessary, you can test automatic renewal for your certificates by running this command:

sudo certbot renew --dry-run

Wish you all the best.
