Dockerized Let's Encrypt Proxy
This is fully automated dockerized proxy that let's you add HTTPS termination with minimal config.
It uses Let's Encrypt for valid certificates and automation. It handles certification issuance as well as renewal.
It has minimal downtime every 2 months, when the Apache proxy is restarted to use the new certificate.

The image needs just a few configurations:
- Expose ports 80 and 443
- Add a network bridge to your service and call it proxied
- Set the hostname for the certificate
- Set the port your app is using
- Test it and then set production mode
An example config:
version: '2' services: proxy: image: sashee/letsencrypt-proxy-docker ports: - "80:80" - "443:443" depends_on: - angular networks: - proxy environment: # Set your host #- HOST=<yourhost> - PORT=80 # Set your email #- EMAIL=<your email> # Turn on production mode #- MODE=PRODUCTION links: - angular:proxied angular: image: thanhson1085/angular-admin-seed networks: - proxy networks: proxy:
angular part to your app, and update the
Let's Encrypt limits the number of certificates issued for a given host every 7 days.
You should test your setup without setting the MODE, and if everything is ok, only then set it to PRODUCTION.
If you test with live certificates, then you can easily find yourself limited and then you have to wait a week to continue.
If you don't have a domain name, you can use nip.io to test it out.
Please note that AWS domains are blacklisted and will not work.
