Hello,

I am having difficulties connecting SSL to my React/Python webapp

I am trying to integrate the PWA and am having difficulties getting the SSL to adopt to the app.

Does anyone have experience with this?

Cheers

I think you're supposed to install the certificate in your web server (Nginx, Apache).
Follow the manual to install it to your server and everything will be fine.

I am using Nginx as a proxy for my Django app and this method is working just fine.

i recently configured nginx, it wasn't part of the stack initially. I will try and work through it. I broke down and actually bought a cert so hopefully, it will solve the problems

thanks for your feedback

hey

I am with Cloudflare ssl with httpd autonomous linux with mos_wsgi. 
foe Django you need mod_wsgi with all which is tricky.

Select os and server and it will show the docs, you have to first shutdown the server then after following the docs restart the server.

Why don't you explore certbot?

1. oracle autonomous linux's epl dont have certbot
and
2.  I mostly like Cloudflare than certbot because Cloudflare has some own methods to maintain ssl certificate

pip install certbot
You already have pip installed if you're running Django. This takes all of 10-15 seconds...

and
2.  I mostly like Cloudflare than certbot because Cloudflare has some own methods to maintain ssl certificate

In your crontab:

30 03 01 * * /path/to/certbot renew

Change time and/or date as appropriate - zero cost, fully automated SSL certificate updates. Certbot is pretty cool when it comes to detecting certs that require updating.

Not too difficult, right?

hi

I don't want to deep analysis of how can Cloudflare bring more preferred than normal cartbot but most likely it is the way it is built. it proxied connections offer tls /mtls edge certificate etc. which is known to us all but it is also there that it maintains its own CA and CA record underneath to maintain transparency. hope I am clear now. so why not? 

let me know if you have any good solution with Cloudflare that helps.
