- [Narrator] In this movie, I'm gonna demonstrate…how to install an SSL certificate using Certbot.…So to begin with, let's go to the Let's Encrypt page…and you'll see that there's…a big button here for Get Started.…So somewhere on this page, it may change over time…but there should be something to say, let's get started.…And it'll tell you here that Certbot…is their preferred way to do it.…And there's a link to the Certbot site.…Certbot, of course, is a separate project by the EFF.…So if we go to this page, it comes up…and it says okay, we're gonna help you do this…but I need to know what software you're using,…and what kind of system you have.…
