The purpose of this post is for me to announce the availability of a new “site” on my domain – a wiki site. This site can be found at: https://wiki.newteq.co.za.
I will be using the wiki site for more tutorial based posts and things to keep in mind when setting up servers, or configurations for applications.
My first post on the wiki platform will be an item regarding the set up of SSL on your apache web server, using Let’s Encrypt . Let’s Encrypt is a great way to get your website SSL secured without having to pay for SSL certs. The Let’s Encrypt drive is to ensure that all web traffic is sent over HTTPS. Let’s Encrypt ensures that you own the server that you are wanting to enable SSL on, making it perfect for anyone (like myself) who would like to ensure that their content is served over HTTPS, but aren’t a huge corporate with big pockets to get the Verisign (or similar) certs.
I have only covered a very high level overview of my understanding of Let’s Encrypt. If you wish to find out more about it, please visit their website
Once I have completed the Let’s Encrypt tutorial, I will be posting another article on here as notification.
