Letsencrypt/certbot experiments with ReadyNAS OS 6.5.0 on RN202

Install letsencrypt/certbot on Readynas OS 6.5.0 (Debian Wheezy):

Docs and inspiration from:
certbot
netgear_581268
netgear_592613

# apt-get install nano (or any other editor you like)

# cd /opt
# mkdir letsencrypt
# cd letsencrypt
# wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto
# chmod a+x certbot-auto

# ./certbot-auto --help all

# apt-get install libaugeas-dev
(to prevent error: Unable to import libaugeas!)

# service apache2 stop

# ./certbot-auto certonly --standalone-supported-challenges tls-sni-01 -d fqdn.yourdomain.com
(to use port 443)

3 Automatically use a temporary ...

- Enter your email address
- Read terms of service

# cd /etc/frontview/apache
# cp apache2.pem apache2.pem.orig
# cp ssl.conf ssl.conf.orig

# nano ssl.conf
add the line
"SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/frontview/apache/chain.pem"
below line
"SSLCertificateFile /etc/frontview/apache/apache2.pem"
save ssl.conf

# rm apache2.pem
# cat /etc/letsencrypt/live/fqdn.yourdomain.com/privkey.pem >> apache2.pem
# cat /etc/letsencrypt/live/fqdn.yourdomain.com/cert.pem >> apache2.pem
# cp /etc/letsencrypt/live/fqdn.yourdomain.com/chain.pem chain.pem

# service apache2 start

Disadvantage: The key is only valid for 3 months and an automatic renewal is somehow complicated.
Maybe a script can help :-)

Test with:
SSLLABS
SSLSHOPPER

And below you'll what I've done to get the certificates easily updated!

 

# cd /opt/letsencrypt
# nano my_renew_hook


Add the following lines to the script:

===== snip =====
#!/bin/sh
rm /etc/frontview/apache/apache2.pem
cat /etc/letsencrypt/live/fqdn.yourdomain.com/privkey.pem >> /etc/frontview/apache/apache2.pem
cat /etc/letsencrypt/live/fqdn.yourdomain.com/cert.pem >> /etc/frontview/apache/apache2.pem
cp /etc/letsencrypt/live/fqdn.yourdomain.com/chain.pem /etc/frontview/apache/chain.pem
===== snap =====

 

Save the script and make it executeable:
# chmod 755 my_renew_hook

 

To renew your certificates run (also possible via a cron-job):
# /opt/letsencrypt/certbot-auto renew --standalone --pre-hook "service apache2 stop" --post-hook "service apache2 start" --renew-hook "/opt/letsencrypt/my_renew_hook"
