How to secure Plesk login page with SSL certificate provided by Let's Encrypt or any Certificate Authority?
Install Let's Encrypt extension in Extensions menu.
With the latest version of the extension it is possible to secure Plesk login in two clicks. Go to Home > Tools&Settings > SSL/TLS Certificates and click on Let's Encrypt button:
On the new page specify domain name that will be used for accessing Plesk (as a default, it is server's hostname specified in Plesk) and click Install button.
If there is no such button, update extension to the latest version or follow steps below:
- In Plesk create a domain that will be used to login to Plesk interface, if it was not created yet. For example, it is example.com
- Make sure that the same hostname is set in Tools & Settings > Server Settings:
Note: this domain name should be registered and resolved to your server.
- Go to Subscriptions > example.com > Websites & Domains > Let's Encrypt and click Install or Renew button (if Let's Encrypt certificate was already installed on the domain)
- Go to Tools & Settings > SSL/TLS Certificates and click Change on the option Certificate for securing Plesk:
- Then, select the certificate of the required domain:
- Logout, refresh the page and login again.
If there is SSL/TLS certificate already provided by any Certificate Authority directly, follow steps below:
- Go to Tools & Settings > SSL/TLS Certificates
- Upload your certificate by clicking Add button.
- Then click Change near the Certificate for securing Plesk field.
- In the opened Secure Plesk dialog select one of the available certificates and click OK.
