    On this exact subject I find myself in need of help-

    I generated my
    Certificate Signing Requests (CSR) under
    Generate a SSL Certificate and Signing Request in WHM -
    Re-keyed my UCC SSL in goDaddy -
    Download the .crt files, (from goDaddy)
    (website1.crt and gd_bundle.crt)

    I go into "Install a SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain"

    Fetch the profile for the SSL I just created.

    (Paste over the crt with website1.com.crt and add the gd_bundle.crt key)

    So the only thing Im leaving that loaded up is the RSA key.
    Hit submit and boom I get an error.

    Regardless of if I the user (weedseed) or nobody.

    The error is:
    Error
    SSL install aborted due to error: Modulus mismatch, key file does not match certificate. Please use the correct key file

    If I do not edit the crt and leave it to the one that fetched it loads up but the site https://site.com calls back a self signing error.

    Any help will be greatly welcome

    Regards
    Dave

    Hello :)

    This typically means the key file fetched by cPanel does not match the CRT. Try manually pasting the CRT and Key file into the appropriate fields to install the certificate.

    Thank you.

    That's sorted -
    I tried pasting the CRT code I got an error.
    So I SSH'ed onto the user and manually deleted usr/ssl/* and that sorted it.
    I have ran into another problem which I have opened another post for.
    Thanks again for the help.
