ACME Configuration

There are two ACME components that must be configured before you can begin using the application.

The first is an ACME Server and the second is a Challenge Solver.

ACME Servers

ACME Servers are the remote entities that actually issue certificates to you via the ACME specification.

By default, Cert Warden includes the Let's Encrypt production and staging servers. See ACME Servers for details on how to change this.

Challenge Solver

Challenge Solvers facilitate the process of proving control over the domain you're requesting a certificate for.

By default Cert Warden serves http-01 challenges over an http server on port 4070. See Providers (Challenge Solvers) for details on how to change this.
