How to setup a SSL certificate without Cloudflare or Zeit?


I have a WordPress site is installed in VPS and SSL already.
I have Frontity is deployed in another VPS.

Without Cloudflare or Zeit, how can I issue the SSL certificate for the Frontity production site?

I don’t have see any official tutorials of it.

Hey @cuongtalentccc!
Do you have a seperate domain/subdomain setup on the Frontity VPS or is it just a bare IP?

What operating system/server are you running on there (ubuntu/apache)? I’m thinking Let’s Encrypt would be super useful, you can self serve a free cert right on your VPS.

The embedded mode plugin (theme bridge) might be a good option if you don’t already have a domain setup too.

I can give you detailed instructions if you answer the above.

Thanks @403page in advance,

The domain is separate of course.

Wordpress is installed in subdomain like this in VPS with Ubuntu 18.04/Nginx Web Server.

The Frontity is installed in another VPS and I connected it already.

But no SSL the site cannot live.


Awesome. Is the VPS with frontity Ubuntu aswell? And do you have a server like Apache or nginx on there?

Frontity is in VPS use Ubuntu as well. No Nginx web server because of Frontity does not require Nginx.

Spot on. Ok cool. Its generally a little more straight-forward to install lets encrypt on apache/nginx which is why I asked but no worries. This guide here will have you setup in 10 minutes
