Remove Expired Comodo SSL Certificate From WordPress Site And Replace With Free LetsEncrypt

Yesterday, my blog’s comodo ssl certificate expired and instead of renewing the ssl certificate, I deleted it via cPanel and replaced it with Letsencrpyt ssl certificate which I get for free on my Siteground web hosting plan.

Deleting the expired ssl certificate from my WordPress site was easy. I signed in to cPanel, navigate to the “security” section, clicked “SSL/TLS manager”, clicked “manage ssl sites” link and clicked the “uninstall” link next to the expired comodo ssl certificate.

Thereafter, I proceeded to installing Letsencrypt free ssl certificate. This was done easily by making use of the siteground let’s encrypt tool which offers one-click installation of let’s encrypt ssl certificate. The tool is available via SiteGround cPanel.

The tool also makes it easy to enforce https via the https settings.

I used WhyNoPadlock to check if there is any non-secure content but there was none. The site passed the test.

  1. Thanks for writing on this, mine expired some months back and I was having issues on renewing it. I will now follow your guide and set it up when next it expires.

  2. I noticed that.. Cos it was showing a warning that I’m visiting a site not secured.

    It was prompting me to go back or proceed. I knew that SSL was out.

    Good it’s back.

    Siteground did very well allowing Letsencrypt for their customers. Something Namecheap is yet to do.
