    I had been using a self-signed cert for my host name. I bought a "real" SSL cert, installed it AND installed it in the service SSL configuration section for everything.

    However, when I go to the server: https://server7.merchantmoms.com/ I still get the old cert. Does anyone know how to fix this? I cleared all the certs out of firefox.

    I get the new cert here just fine (expires 2011). You might try clearing your browser cache to see if that helps.

    Please note that the service SSL certificate installations are separate from and do not affect web site certificates configured in Apache virtual hosts, such as what is seen at the specified URL via HTTPS access on TCP port 443, served by Apache/httpd. SSL certificates configured in Apache virtual hosts may be updated using WHM via the following menu paths, including being able to check the SSL host installation status and or re-install the SSL certificate to ensure it's updated:
    WHM: Main >> SSL/TLS >> Install a SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain
    WHM: Main >> SSL/TLS >> Manage SSL Hosts

    I'm also seeing the new non-self-signed SSL certificate but only when testing SSL access to cPanel, WHM, Webmail, and cPanel Web Disk:
    Code:
    https://server7.merchantmoms.com:2083/
    https://server7.merchantmoms.com:2087/
    https://server7.merchantmoms.com:2096/
    https://server7.merchantmoms.com:2078/
    I am seeing the self-signed SSL certificate only via the following URL:
    Code:
    https://server7.merchantmoms.com/
    For testing purposes, the following commands may also be used to debug SSL access on individual ports while also displaying the certificate received from the server; the example text "server" should be replaced by the server hostname or domain name involved; testing of other services is possible by entering the desired SSL port (such as port 2087 for WHM or 2083 for cPanel):
    Code:
    # openssl s_client -connect server:443
    # openssl s_client -connect server:443 -debug

    Thank you!

    I'm still seeing the self-signed cert as well when I just go to:
    https://server7.merchantmoms.com

    I did install it via WHM under "nobody" and set it up as the shared cert for the server, as well as in the SSL service configuration, so I'm not sure why!

    Never mind, I reinstalled it in WHM, even though it was the same info, but this time it seems to have "taken" and looks like it is working. Thanks!
