(Apologies if that sounded snippy). Again the offering of these certificates by Reclaom means I am much more likely to encrypt my sites than before you made them available.
I’m less worried about my own case and more about average users, and thinking it’s not a technical need but just some awareness. If Pat Teacher sets up SSL and starting getting messages for their students colleagues unable to go directly to a course site will they understand the problem?
The panel I was looking at was a place I might go to see what is going on the SSL/TLS status one. I see a long list there (it looks like every domain I have, which makes sense as Reclaim sets up by default certs for all my stuff), not just the 5 I have gone through the Let’s Encrypt one to install certs on. And it looks like I enabled SSL on all my stuff.
This statement might make it appear I have done something wrong, I might not even know what AutoSSL is
I’d be better off going to the Let’s Encrypt panel, which it did show at the top that my certs had expired. But as a normal user, my impulse is to click “Reinstall” where my domain is listed, not doing from below which is the one that works.
I also noted there is, under the Let’s Encrypt settings, an option box to disable email notifications, which should take care, but maybe it’s not working (or I missed the emails)
So nothing is wrong with the set up, but that if we are encouraging people to do SSL, they might miss some of these steps. For myself, I will set up calendar reminders to check before expiry dates.
