acme - :lock: acmetool, an automatic certificate acquisition tool for ACME (Let's Encrypt)

  •    Go

acmetool is an easy-to-use command line tool for automatically acquiring certificates from ACME servers (such as Let's Encrypt). Designed to flexibly integrate into your webserver setup to enable automatic verification. Unlike the official Let's Encrypt client, this doesn't modify your web server configuration.You can perform verifications using port 80 or 443 (if you don't yet have a server running on one of them); via webroot; by configuring your webserver to proxy requests for /.well-known/acme-challenge/ to a special port (402) which acmetool can listen on; or by configuring your webserver not to listen on port 80, and instead running acmetool's built in HTTPS redirector (and challenge responder) on port 80. This is useful if all you want to do with port 80 is redirect people to port 443.

php-proxy - A PHP proxy script with https and post support

  •    PHP

This is a HTTP/HTTPS proxy script that forwards requests to a different server and returns the response. The Proxy class uses PSR7 request/response objects as input/output, and uses Guzzle to do the actual HTTP request. The following example creates a request object, based on the current browser request, and forwards it to example.com. The RemoveEncodingFilter removes the encoding headers from the original response so that the current webserver can set these correctly.
