Can ISPC auto generate lets encrypt for panel 8080, ftp, postfix and dovecot?

    Hi all, I noticed that new in 3.2 the installer asks for SSL as follows:

    Create new ISPConfig SSL certificate (yes,no) [no]: yes
    Symlink ISPConfig SSL certs to Postfix? (y,n) [y]: Symlink ISPConfig SSL certs to Postfix? (y,n) [y]: y
    Symlink ISPConfig SSL certs to Pure-FTPd? Creating dhparam file may take some time. (y,n) [y]: y

    • What confuses me is that it doesn't ask for SSL for dovecot, it only asks for postfix?
    • Is this some kind of self-signed SSL certificate or Lets Encrypt that will automatically renew itself?
    • Does ISPConfig encrypt the web panel with i http on https://<hostname>:8080?

    How to please let's encrypt for http (web-panel 8080), pure-ftp, postfix and dovecot via autointall.ini here:

    Thanks for informations.

    Dovecot uses the Postfix SSL cert, makes no sense to have different certs for smtp and imap.

    A Let's encrypt SSL cert is used if Let#s encrypt is able to issue a cert for the hostname, if the cert is refused e.g. due to wrong DNS configuration, then a self-signed SSL cert is used.

    The Controlpanel login is always SSL encrypted.

    You can find the autoinstall.ini sample in the ISPConfig tar.gz file, it enables SSL by default.

    Ah, so just put yes 3 times in the installation configuration file during installation and all services will be encrypted with LE, that's great, thank you for the advice.
