Let’s Encrypt is an amazing service which allows you to add SSL certificates for free on your website. But the process isn’t straightforward if you are running Debian 8. No worries, you can always use the Let’s Encrypt git repo to install the certificates.
Sidenote: You can use this method to install Let’s Encrypt SSL on any OS and for any application.
- Install git
sudo apt-get -y install git
- Clone letsencrypt rep in ‘/usr/local’

cd /usr/local/letsencrypt sudo ./letsencrypt-auto --apache -d example.com
That’s it. You can now change your website address on WordPress settings.
