    One user needs to change the certs for it's Apache domains in an automatic way.

    It seems the user certs are on /home/<user>/ssl/certs and /home/<user>/ssl/keys

    The user tried to upload to that directory the new crt and key files within FTP and we restarted Apache, but the loaded certificates on Apache seem to be the older ones yet.

    It's there any way to allow the user to do that?


    If we enter on SSL/TLS and enter on the certificates CRT option and edit one "updated by FTP" cert the cPanel website show the good expiration date of the current physical file. But the cPanel doesn't updates it and doesn't writes/shows the new certificate on Apache.
