Keiro: So, a friend of mine asked me in an IRC channel if InterWorx was going to add Let's Encrypt integration. Right now, cPanel has a feature request over https://features.cpanel.net/topic/provide-support-for-lets-encrypt-automated-certificate-management-ssl for LE integration. Since this applies to both NodeWorx and SiteWorx, I figured posting the request here would be a better idea until someone moves it to the appropriate place. One thing to be concerned about may be the e-mail that LE needs for contacting a site owner about their certs. You should probably ensure that it's properly accounted for in our shared/reseller hosting environments for those of us who offer shared/reseller hosting. I'm surprised a request hadn't been posted here, as so far, LE is now in Open Beta as of December 3rd. We plan on implementing this but it'll be a manual process, requiring us to temporarily stop the httpd server to do the standalone SSL cert install. I'd personally prefer to have an InterWorx-tested LE implementation rather than one that I cobble together, especially since I suspect that presenting the UI for cert generation and the like would require working on IW itself. Which we obviously can't do as per our Reseller agreement with IW. And of course, someone's already made a how-to for using LE with cPanel, https://forums.cpanel.net/threads/how-to-installing-ssl-from-lets-encrypt.513621/ So they've already got an implementation going... at least, for their API stuff. If InterWorx wants to hold off on releasing a proper, official integration, you could drop an "unofficial" how-to yourself - that would be clever (it would be turning whoever attempts it into alpha testers). Perfect way to test out your implementation, especially against the staging server that LE has.

  1. Daniel Barr: I tried to vote on this, but it won't let me. So figured I'd leave a comment for now (and hope it shows up...).
