    We have a customer that already has one RapidSSL certificate for www.domain.tld

    This works fine. He just ordered 2 additional certificates, one for mail.domain.tld and one for webmail.domain.tld.

    I made sure that a valid A record exists for both mail and webmail, and that the customer has a dedicated IP address (he has one already for the www.domain.tld which is working properly).

    However, when I install the certificate for mail.domain.tld I get the following error:

    The specified domain is not configured on the system. If you are intending to install a shared certificate you must use the username "nobody" for security and bandwidth reporting reasons.

    SSL Install aborted due to error.

    Why is it telling me that the specified domain is not in the system, when it clearly is??? I don't want to install the certificate as user nobody.

    Any ideas???

    Can you be more specific?

    I understand I can install it as nobody, but how exactly do I manually correct the entry after? What file(s) need to be corrected for this to work? Assuming httpd.conf... What exactly though?

    Thanks.

    Is mail.example.com setup as a subdomain via the cPanel interface?

    One thing to keep in mind is we currently only support a single SSL Certificate per IP address. Your customer might be better served obtaining a wildcard SSL Certificate.

    Any idea when you will support more than one?

    No, mail.domain.tld is not set up as a sub domain. Should it be? All I did was modify the DNS to set it as an A record, instead of a CNAME.

    I know a wildcard cert would solve this problem, but we told the customer they had a choice of a wildcard cert or 3 separate certs, because we've installed it that way on other servers, (not running cPanel) and that works fine. Customer opted for 3 separate certs (at our price of $19.99/year) verses the wildcard cert for $119.00 (or at Verisign $349.00)...

    So, any idea when you will support more than one ssl per IP address? I know it's possible via Apache, so this shouldn't be too difficult for cPanel.

    Thanks.

    You can create mail.domain.tld and webmail.domain.tld as separate cPanel accounts. Put them on individual dedicated IPs and install the SSL certs.
