Save the page https://gethttpsforfree.com/ locally and use a clean browser to open the HTML file.
Create your keys and everything.
Cat domain.key and chained.pem into a new pemfile.
Grab the Let’s Encrypt Authority X1 (IdenTrust cross-signed) pemfile from https://letsencrypt.org/certificates/
Put those two files in a safe place on your server.
Don’t forget to set proper permissions on the files.
ssl.ca-file = "/path/to/lets-encrypt-x1-cross-signed.pem" # the Let's Encrypt certificate
ssl.pemfile = "/path/to/pemfile.pem" # your pemfile

Restart lighttpd.
Done.
