Auto-configure a Let's Encrypt certificate

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

The Bitnami HTTPS Configuration Tool is a command line tool for configuring mainly HTTPS certificates on Bitnami stacks, but also common features such as automatic renewals, redirections (e.g. HTTP to HTTPS), etc. This tool is located in the installation directory of the stack at installdir.

IMPORTANT: The Bitnami HTTPS Configuration Tool does not support configuring NGINX web servers yet. If you use NGINX, please follow this alternative approach.

To launch the Bitnami HTTPS Configuration Tool, execute the following command and follow the prompts:

$ sudo installdir/bncert-tool

Refer to our guide for more information on this, or if you cannot find the tool in your Bitnami stack.

If you prefer to manually generate and install Let’s Encrypt certificates, follow this alternative approach.
