Upgrading SSL certificate on Cloudfront

Upgrading SSL certificate on Cloudfront

Last year I set up with an SSL certificate on Amazon S3 / CloudFront.

Now, it's time to renew the certificate.

The first time was fraught with peril, but I eventually got it working.

This time I will document the steps to renew the cert. Most steps for a new installation would be omitted.

Dealing with Ruby versions - chruby

Dealing with Ruby versions - chruby

Every time I sit down to code, it seems like a new Ruby version is available.

When I first learned ruby I used rvm on my Mac. In production on linux, I use rbenv, likely due to its Capistrano integration.

When I set up my current machine, I found rvm had fallen out of fashion in favour of something called chruby.

Install new ruby

// option 1 to override fetch, using cypress built-in facilities (e.g. sinon)
// sinon syntax ⬇️
.stub(win, 'fetch')
// The pseudocode-ish that this generates, kinda like this:
const realFetch = window.fetch
window.fetch = (arg1) => {

Cloudflare migration

Migrating an SSL site to CloudFlare

Overview has run on AWS CloudFront for the past year. Today I renewed the certificate, and while I waited for the manual approval, I wondered whether I could get CloudFlare running in "5 minutes" as advertised.

Signing up

I signed up for an account, and entered the domain.

I am deploying with this IAM using Codeship and Circle CI to Elastic Beanstalk. I had a lot of trouble with this config. I talked to the aws support for about 6 hours until this worked properly, so, I guess it is worth to share.

UPDATE: In the end, I have to use the AWSElasticBeanstalkFullAccess policy. My custom policy keep breaking every week with some new added permission or some EB internal change. Anyway, the IAM I was using is below.

This works for me with CircleCI and EB Cli.
