How Can I Activate SSL for my VPS?


I have VPS Server from OVH. I want to change “http” to “https”. I have a wordpress website on my VPS, how can I do this. Please help.


Scenario: a VPS under your control running (for example) Ubuntu 18.04, Apache2, and a website on port 80, currently running http. Now you want to install a SSL certificate and run the site with https.
Go to: In this site enter: My HTTP website is running ‘Ubuntu 18.04’ and ‘Apache’.
Steps: 1. SSH into your VPS, 2. add Certbot PPA, 3. install Certbot, 4. run Certbot et voila (you are done).
Your website now is running https with a auto-renewing SSL certificate from LetsEncrypt.
