„Let’s Encrypt“ here I come.

I just switched from „StartSSL“ certificates to „Let’s Encrypt“ certificates.

Although „StartSSL“ is providing an API to create certificates (I haven’t used it, so I can’t tell anything about it), I made a change this evening in switching to „Let’s Encrypt“ certificates generated in a own nginx reverse proxy setup. I use the image from eforce21/letsencrypt-nginx-proxy for this.

Besides some setup issues (IPv6 and running a Apache somewhere on the Host), it worked really smooth.

That’s what I like about Docker: Putting stuff together in a meaningful way.

Thumbs up.
