How to secure Plesk login page with SSL certificate provided by Let's Encrypt or any Certificate Authority?
- Login to Plesk
- Install Let's Encrypt extension in Extensions menu.
- Go to Home > Tools & Settings > SSL/TLS Certificates and click on Let's Encrypt button:
- 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.
