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.
- You need to have a DNS Multitenant Setup
- Your site should be accessible via a valid domain
- You need root permissions on your server
- 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
sudo snap install core; sudo snap refresh core
Remove existing installations of certbot
sudo apt-get remove 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.
