    Hi,
    I have a lot of certificates expiring today and AutoSSL cannot update them because it says it failed domain control validation as it couldn't find the temporary file.

    The problem is, I have the domain pointing to an AWS server, so cPanel cannot auto generate this file.

    Is there another way I can validate the domain?

    Hello,

    The domain validation process with cPanel-signed (Comodo) and Let's Encrypt certificates require the domain name to resolve to the cPanel server's IP address and fetch automatically generated verification text files. There's no support for AutoSSL for domain names that resolve to a remote web server.

    Thank you.
