Installs the required acme-client rubygem.
letsencrypt_certificate provider to request a certificate. The webserver for the domain for which you are requesting a certificate must be running on the local server. Currently only the http validation method is supported. Provide the path to your
wwwroot for the specified domain.
letsencrypt_certificate 'test.example.com' do crt '/etc/ssl/test.example.com.crt' key '/etc/ssl/test.example.com.key' method 'http' wwwroot '/var/www' end
In case your webserver needs an already existing certificate when installing a new server you will have a bootstrap problem. Webserver cannot start without certificate, but the certificate cannot be requested without the running webserver. To overcome this a self-signed certificate can be generated with the
letsencrypt_selfsigned 'test.example.com' do crt '/etc/ssl/test.example.com.crt' key '/etc/ssl/test.example.com.key' end
A working example can be found in the included
acme_client test cookbook.
The kitchen includes a
boulder server to run the integration tests with, so testing can run locally without interaction with the online API's.
