Let’s Encrypt Update Blog!

End of life for Let’s Encrypt Legacy, time to update! In August, we shared in a blog post that the Let’s Encrypt original API, ACMEv1, would be reaching EOL (end of life) on October 31.

The Apache Distiller- 86’d in 84

Way back in EasyApache 3, if a user wanted to make updates to their Apache configuration, they would do so by using the Apache distiller to make said changes.

Upcoming Changes to Let’s Encrypt Plugin

Earlier this year, Let’s Encrypt announced the end of life (EOL) plan for their original API. Starting this November, they will no longer allow new account registrations through the original API. After the original API reaches EOL, new account registrations must use Let’s Encrypt’s new API. Because of this, cPanel is migrating its Let’s Encrypt plugin to use that new API instead of the old API. Why change now? If we do not update our plugin, we …
