    Hi all!

    I have a VPS that i want to use as a cloud test in my reseller domain (the reseller is in another server).

    So i've created the subdomain in cPanel and modified the subdomain's IP in WHM and it works well.

    Now the problem is that i want to use SSL in this subdomain and I think that cPanel can't do anything for this, it's right?

    There's a possibility that cPanel can use FTP or something to modify the directory in the server for the autoSSL verify code?

    Or at least can I copy manually the folder?

    Thank you in advance

    Hi @Tusca

    Does the server that is hosting the subdomain have cPanel installed? AutoSSL will only provision an SSL certificate for domain's that resolve to the server. This means that the AutoSSL process will not provide an SSL for the subdomain where the reseller is. If cPanel is installed on the VPS where the subdomain points, the AutoSSL process on that server will provision an SSL for the subdomain.

    Thank you,
