Keywords: WordPress Multisite - AWS - How to - Secure Connections (SSL/HTTPS)
We have an AWS Lightsail WP multisite setup with several sites (currently testing with 3 sites, but planning to scale this to hundreds or thousands). Some of the sites are on subdomains of our main site's domain and some of the sites are using custom domains.
We need all the sites to be on HTTPS and ideally we need a quick & seamless way to add additional certificates whenever we add a new custom domain.
We tried bncert-tool, but we're faced with several issues:
1. Most importantly, it doesn't work for subdomains of our main domain. Is there a way to use it to set up a wildcard SSL?
2. Every time when running the tool we need to list all the domains. Is there no better way, e.g. to just append the new domains?
3. This causes 10-20 seconds of downtime (which might increase as we add more domains?). Is there no way to avoid it or at least minimize it?
Thanks in advance!
