    Can a SSL certificate from one cpanel server be moved to another? (and i\'m not planning on using the cert on both servers).

    Yes, definitely.
    It\'s actually very easy on a linux environment.

    Get the current private key, and current certificate file (you can see exactly where those files are being utilized by apache, just look in the httpd.conf under the virtual host config for the SSL site in question)

    Pull them over to the new machine and basically duplicate the virtual host setup, just with a new unique IP that exists on the new machine.

    That\'s really all you have to do.
    Just move the matching key and cert for the domain in question, in a nutshell.
