How to use certbot to obtain a Let’s Encrypt SSL cert for your Drupal site running on CentOS 6.7 / 6.x

By | Drupal | No Comments

This article details some of the hoops I had to jump through before I could authorize my Let’s Encrypt cert via Certbot, hope it helps the next guy.


Certbot used to only support python 2.7 and above, but recently began supporting again. That’s good news as CentOS is still on Python 2.6.

Danger: CentOS requires the particular python version it comes with, so do not attempt to upgrade 2.6 to 2.7!

There are some guides on how to install python 2.7 side by side 2.6, but as of the time of writing, it is unnecessary to do so. Certbot can detect if python 2.6 is used and support it accordingly. If you did install python 2.7 as well, it may confuse the auto-detect script in certbot and cause it to attempt to install unneeded packages which will lead to conflicts.  Read More

By | Drupal | No Comments

Ryan and I recently presented at the Drupal Business Day, the first time that the global event has been held in Singapore. The guys at Pixel Onion (Kiat & SJ) did a fantastic job putting the event together and thanks to them for extending an invitation for us to speak at the event.

We got to share some of our thoughts about the challenges & tools for managing communities with Drupal and you can find the presentation below.

What is Drupal?
It is a free, mobile friendly, open-source content management system and framework that is used to build many modern websites ranging from blogs to media, enterprise, political and government websites. It is used in at least 2.1% of all websites worldwide. Examples include the White House and The Economist. The platform also scales well to support millions of users.
