I have close to no knowledge on the matter (and I prefer not to touch the server LOL), so it's Spuds' call here. Or @TE if he comes around. :P

BTW: I just started researching how to set up ssl on my localhost before google kills desktop notifications support for non-SSL sites... what a pain. ::)
It will always display an error for localhost

If you are using a Cpanel hosting platform it is really simple. The SSL/TLS Manager will allow you to generate SSL certificates, certificate signing requests, and private keys. These are all parts of using SSL to secure your website. SSL allows you to secure pages on your site so that information such as logins, credit card numbers, etc are sent encrypted instead of plain text. It is important to secure your site’s login areas, shopping areas, and other pages where sensitive information could be sent over the web.


If you will use the link, username, and password that I have provided for you below you will be able to see a real CPanel. Go to where it says SSL/TLS and click on it to see what I'm talking about.

@emanuele45, you can rename your localhost to any fqdn and get ssl certs for that fqdn. Other than using certbot, you can try acme.sh in obtaining and auto renewing LE ssl certs for it as well.

I'm far before this step, I just managed to understand how to have the server respond when I point the browser to https. xD

I haven't done this, but would you still get a certificate error?

You shouldn't gel ssl error in your browser if LE certs can be issued and then properly installed for the localhost site.

Joshua Dickerson, you could get an error if the certificate is bad. I have bought then and they were bad, of course, they were replaced by the co. I bought then from. it's just a pain when you get a bad certificate. It doesn't happen that often.
