    I have a domain running Wordpress multisite, which needs a wildcard * certificate, since my customers can create any subdomain they want.

    Later, the subdomain is mapped to the client's real domain name (e.g. I then attempt to enable autoSSL by creating an add-on domain.

    When autoSSL runs, the existing wildcard certificate gets installed because it matches the servername value. autoSSL won't issue an new certificate to cover the add-on domain because it won't uninstall/replace the valid, non-autoSSL wildcard certificate. So I end up with this: covered by existing wildcard cert, validated as secure. domain name does not match certificate, unsecure. domain name does not match certificate, unsecure.

    Is there a way to get around this and get autoSSL to handle the add-on domain names?
