Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open Certificate Authority. Recently the automatic SSL certificate renewal request for one of my domains, which is in instance of Phabricator, was about to happen but an error occured. The problem was not with Let’s Encrypt, but with the way this domain was configured.
One of the first things a developer needs when starts a new project, it’s remote access to files and database. Today we’ll discuss the first one.
The most common way of accessing files from a server is via File Transfer Protocol (FTP), but we know that no software ever made is flawless, so I recommend that you do a Google search for “Stop using FTP” and you’ll see the reasons why FTP is not a good option anymore and why SSH is better.
