No CSF uses symlinks (points to original LE cert). I was having permission issues with Deluge and ZNC so had to make a copy of the cert within their dirs.

I’m using kimsufi and I setup cloudflare

this is setting I got from here

I setup domain with cloudflare

I would advise you to fix your LetsEncrypt certificate on your current nameserver, before moving it to CloudFlare. And also from the pictures you’ve attached I’m failing to see that you’ve pointed your nameservers to Cloudflare. Thats a must if you want CF to handle all traffic

The installation failed when I choose 000-default… so I had to choose default-ssl.conf and manually change the crt and key file paths in order to make it work.
I assume that there is something within that string that I should change because of this, right? Do I just enter
sed -i "s|DocumentRoot /var/www/html|DocumentRoot /srv/rutorrent/home/|g" /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default-ssl.conf && service apache2 restart
and get away with it?

oh I see, so you saying just remove cloudflare from domain and only keep

Kimsufi <-> Domain and do it that way 1st then later on add Cloudflare Kimsufi <-> Cloudflare <-> Domain

done… now I have removed and fixed my domain with my kimsufi DNS … lets see if that works and loads up the page/dashboard

If you have the site being handled by the CloudFlare edge nodes (Cloud Icon Orange on the domain) then Lets Encrypt tries using the CloudFlare IP and not your Server IP. Please set the icon to grey before attempting to install your certificate.

Hello all,

Using JMSolo + SavageCore guide, Letsencrypt is working on my quickbox setup.
Only little hiccup is when I click on the Plex link on the left side, it returns:

Not Found
The requested URL /web/ was not found on this server.
Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu) Server at $myserver$ Port 443

I’ll see if I can find where the problem is and post here if I find it.


this is due to it not having a reverse proxy that works so no
it works if you set up plex server and use ip but other wise not so much thanks to one of plex updates.

your domain/plex

Hey dtech,

Thanks for the information.
I’ll stick to using IP:port for now until a fix comes out / if it does…

A post was split to a new topic: Get other programs on QuickBox using LE certs

Is it possible to enable HSTS on the server?

fix for what exactly ?

Have you tried it? Going for the A+ on the SSL test? :grinning:

lol yup, and yeah I did it! Success! A+ :smiley:

I also edited some stuff to increase security. if you scan on this website :

there is a section at the bottom of the page which has some tips to improve your server security a little bit.

Hi Guys,

anyone has tested Certbot (

No need to use certbot when you can use the built in LetsEncrypt installer
sudo su box install letsencrypt


It’s my go to every time I’m using QuickBox - for nonQB servers I do use certbot though - it’s just too handy!

I managed to get this installed, thank you for the guide. I just have one issue. What would be the equivalent of this line but for Deluge?

sed -i "s|DocumentRoot /var/www/html|DocumentRoot /srv/rutorrent/home/|g" /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default-le-ssl.conf && service apache2 restart

Since Deluge is going to be my main client I want to set it up under ssl the same as rutorrent. Thanks!

Found the info myself here so leaving the reply in case someone else needs it: Get other programs on QuickBox to use LE certs
