How To Configure Let's Encrypt For Drupal & Virtualmin

Let's Encrypt is taking over the world with its free SSL certificates, and I'm using it on ALL of my websites (including the one you're reading right now). But using it with Drupal & Virtualmin is not as easy as it should be, so today I'll show everyone how to make it work 100%. It took me a few hours of detective work to figure out the following two prerequisites that need to be taken care of before using Let's Encrypt:

Drupal Relation Module Configuration Manual

Today I'll show you guys how to install the Relation module for Drupal 7. Believe it or not, it took me almost five years to fully figure out how to install what I think is one of the most confusing modules ever made lol.

So what exactly does Relation do? Let's say you have a film and its sequel:

* Film 1 is followed by film 2.

Anyway, here's how to solve it:

Drupal Background Images Formatter Module Configuration Manual

Yesterday I wrote a blog post on how to configure a Drupal module called Background Images. Today I'll continue with part 2, and it's a simple one but essential as well, because this module doesn't even come with a README.txt file at all lol.

Drupal Background Images Module Configuration Manual

During my San Diego Drupal Users Group lightning talk on March 8, I showed a brief demo of how background images can be made to be clickable via CSS, something that I once thought was impossible. But as I'll show you over the next few days, it actually is 100% possible, and I had a LOT of fun getting it to finally work exactly the way I want it. Today's tutorial will be part 1 of 4.
