So after quite a bit of tinkering I am now able to configure a site on an Ubuntu 18.04 LTS VPS.
Where I’m struggling however is how to enable SSL using a LetsEncrypt certificate. I used the following command to update the previously installed site:
ee site update sitename.com --ssl=le
The dialog requested my ‘email id’, to which I responded with the email address under which my domain (sitename.com) is registered. I then got a message that the “Challenge failed”.
Am I correct in entering the email address registered to the domain name when asked for my mail id? Or should I provide some other response?
Hoping someone can help me sort this out (Note that I am using Cloudflare - do I need to change this while configuring SSL?)
