In this article, we will show you how to install the Let’s Encrypt client on your Ubuntu 20.04 VPS, issue an SSL certificate for your domain, and configure it with the Apache webserver.
Let’s Encrypt is a certificate authority organization (CA) that allows anyone to obtain a free SSL certificate with simple and automated commands. In this tutorial, we will use a tool called certbot, which is an official part of EFF???s effort to encrypt the entire Internet.
