Script to add a Let’s Encrypt free certificate to an existing Lighttpd web server

Add Let’s Encrypt Certificates to Lighttpd

I wrote a bash script to help add a let's encrypt SSL certificate to a lighttpd web server via the console. Weirdly, they only provide fully automated support for Apache and Nginx as of now (but anyhow, I like to do it my way).

I highly recommend doing so not only because their certificates are free, but also because they help a lot reducing the usual manual burden to install an SSL certificate on an existing web site.
