I’ve been meaning to add SSL to this blog ever since I first heard of Let’s Encrypt last year. Unfortunately, support on my otherwise awesome webhost was not yet first-class and seemed complicated at the time, so I kept putting it off. But recently I was testing something unrelated and found out that I needed to have SSL on my server in order for OAuth2 to work, so I grudgingly got to it.

Luckily I found out about a handy utility written in Ruby that does most of the stuff for me: letsencrypt-webfaction. It was surprisingly easy to setup, with only a single false start because I had a silly typo.

So now this site has SSL! Hooray!
