Example of location bar with lock indicating secure HTTPS connection

I have set up HTTPS on my website (see the closed lock in the address bar?). Webfaction hosts my websites and I set up the TSL certificates I did it using free security certificates from Let's Encrypt. I have done it several times now, but I continue to forget how to do it the next time that I try to set it up. The following are notes to myself that I hope might be helpful to someone else as well. (Note that these instructions work only for websites hosted on Webfaction.)
