Custom certificates for web edition

According to this post Web Edition - using non-standard HTTPS port the duplicacy web UI uses LE with HTTP challenge.


  • It is possible to provision my own certificates instead?
  • Where should they be placed? /config/certs?
  • In what format?
  • Will duplicacy notice if the files there have updated and relaunch web server on its own or do I have to do it manually?
  • How can I prevent it from trying to talk to LE?

Currently it is not possible to supply your own certificates. I think it is not difficult to add this feature. I’ll try for the next release.

Any updates on this one?

Sorry I didn’t do it for 1.2.0/1.2.1. I’ve added it to Roadmap for the web GUI to make sure it will be included in the next version.


Eagerly waiting for this support to come as well.

Any update on this? I generate wildcard SSL certs outside and would be nice to expose something in the web UI to point to the cert.

Version 1.5.0 supports custom certificates. You’ll need to create 2 files under ~/.duplicacy-web/certs: domain.crt contains the full chain certificates and domain.key is the private key ( replace domain with the actual domain name).
