Since I have a few projects that require passwords (most notably LJBackup), I’ve wanted to set up HTTPS on my website. I had done this with my own self-signed certificate a while back, which works but gives you a pretty scary-looking warning in various browsers. I’ve blocked out the memory of what I had to do to get this to work, but it was very painful.
And – wow! It totally works! It made a certificate and updated my Apache config that worked correctly out of the box. Now gregstoll.com has a pretty green lock when you visit it 🙂
