I had a very specific problem that i wanted to solve: setting up a wordpress installation that had https, and it had to be inside of a docker container. wew, tall order!

VERY luckily for me, the project HTTPS-PORTAL is is working order and being actively developed!

Using Let's Encrypt'scertificate automation, I was able to set up an HTTPS wordpress install in under five minutes. Here are some reasons why sites should be using HTTPS:

  • HTTPS helps prevent intruders from tampering with the communications between your websites and your users’ browsers. Intruders include intentionally malicious attackers, and legitimate but intrusive companies, such as ISPs or hotels that inject ads into pages.
  • HTTPS prevents intruders from being able to passively listen in on the communications between your websites and your users.
  • It is much cheaper and faster to imlement because of the Let's Encrypt project!
