I hate SSL and HTTPS. It makes self hosting so much harder. Having all sorts of issues. I am serving a public website I don't need a secure connection.
@xj9 that indeed is one good reason for it. Maybe what I really wanted to complain about is browsers making you go through hell just to look at a website that doesn't have a valid cert. like yeah shits dangerous sometimes and me having a valid cert just to read a text file is not gonna change that.
@wakest tried letsencrypt using certbot?
@lunaterra yeah was just trying to figure it out for an hour cause I wanted to get my site off of github but gave up cause I didn't understand the errors I was getting.
@wakest ohhh on github. Yeah idk
@lunaterra no off github. github does it automatically. I moved my site off to Hostgator and then of course it didn't automatically move the already existing letsencrypt so I tried re adding it to the new hosting provider but it was giving me so many issues.
