Lession - #725 Add SSL


I add SSL to the Grafana web server to guarantee everything traffic is encoded between the server and internet browser.

I use LetsEncrypt by adhering to the Certbot guidelines.

For Web Server programming, I pick Nginx

For Operating framework, I pick Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

I then SSH onto my new Grafana server,

I guarantee snap is introduced. sudo snap list Ensure I have the most recent adaptation of snap sudo snap introduce center; sudo snap revive center
I introduce the exemplary certbot

sudo snap introduce - - exemplary certbot

Set up the order with the goal that it tends to be executed from the order line

sudo ln - s/snap/canister/certbot/usr/receptacle/certbot

Begin the method involved with introducing the SSL endorsement for my area name.

sudo certbot - - nginx

Follow the prompts, and enter the space name that you need to get.

After consummation, you ought to then have the option to now visit your Grafana server utilizing the url


Note that in the wake of running Certbot, it has changed the settings of your Nginx arrangement record you made before.

You can see those changes by utilizing the feline order.

feline/and so on/nginx/destinations empowered/YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME

Port 80 and 443

Subsequent to introducing the SSL endorsement utilizing CertBot, and solicitation to your area name on port 80 will be auto sent to port 443 and utilizing the SSL authentication. For everything to fall into place, both port 80 and 443 ought to be open for approaching associations tn your server.

Note that relying upon your cloud supplier, you might have to permit approaching TCP associations on port 80 and 443 utilizing the firewall choices provided. E.g., on AWS you'd have to add inbound principles for 80 and 443 to your servers security bunch.

On Digital Ocean, Hetzner and other cloud suppliers, there might be no firewall hindering ports of course, so port 80 and 443 ought to be permit approaching associations naturally.

Subsequent to guaranteeing ports 80 and 443 work, it is presently alright the block port 3000 for outer associations on the off chance that you never again need it. You can utilize the iptables order to physically oversee which IP ports are empowered/impaired on your waiter.

The beneath orders permit localhost TCP associations with port 3000 (expected by the Nginx intermediary pass>
, however block all outer solicitations to it.

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s --dport 3000 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 3000 -j DROP

After making the above changes, you verify the rules are set.

iptables -L
