Obsolete page?

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 2016-09-19.

I think that this page is obsolete. The new certbot tool is very friendly and effective.

Should we heavily rewrite the page? --Hujuice (talk) 17:04, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Hujuice , please remember to sign your comments to discussion pages so those who wish to respond can see (at a glance) to whom they're replying. What part(s) of the article to you see as obsolete? Did you noticed that certbot is mentioned in the article? Please keep this in mind and state your intended changes. Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 16:42, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Sorry Matthew Marchese (Maffblaster) , I'm not new to the wiki but I'm new to a discussion.
This is the one line command to get a working certificate for my domain:
root #certbot certonly --webroot -w /var/www/vhosts/machete-rocks/www/htdocs/ -d -d
The renew command is:
root #certbot renew
Except for useful but secondary refinements, that's all.
My version of app-crypt/certbot is ~0.8.1-r2 and the Certbot User Guide is an easy reading for the details.
So, the whole acme-tiny argument is obsolete, imho. --Hujuice (talk) 17:04, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
I'd say you should definitely include your certbot one-liner commands under the Usage section. The I believe the acme-tiny client still works with Let's Encrypt (as an alternative to certbot). If this isn't true than we can probably remove it from the article, otherwise I don't see why it should be removed at this time.
Well, I'm still using acme-tiny, so I find this wiki page very useful. One thing is that I had to update the intermediate certificate link on the page as it seems to point to an obsolete certificate. Kirx (talk) 10:08, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
Hopefully Mediawiki's new discussion system will be implemented wiki-wide soon which will automate the little parts of discussion most people wouldn't know about (like signing comments). That's our long-term plan; as far as I know we're still waiting for it to stabilize. --Maffblaster (talk) 17:11, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
