I have a domain name,for example : XYZ.com

and a dedicated IP, for example :1.2.3.4

i m unable to set this IP to 1.2.3.4 to XYZ.com

Code:
Changing ip for XYZ.com (XYZ) to 1.2.3.4

Setting up for ip change..... Done
Sorry, 1.2.3.4 is in use by another domain name and is not a shared ip.
but in reality 1.2.3.4 IP is not used for any thing its a fresh IP :

Code:
/scripts/updatedomainips
but still no help, my Client is in urgent need of the dedicated IP

Hello :)

Try rebuilding the IP address pool via:

"WHM >> IP Functions >> Rebuild the IP Address Pool"

If you still can not use the IP address, please contact our support team:

For anyone else who may view this thread, the Apache configuration file can be rebuilt using the following command:

Code:
# /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf
Thank you.

I solved the issue by manually giving IP to the website and then i just rebuild-ed Apache's conf file through command line
For anyone that comes accross this with a more curent version;

This seems to be caused when you try to reuse an IP address that was previously used with another SSL certificate. Make sure you've uninstalled the pervious SSL and followed the isntructions above to clear and make available the IP address (Rebuild the IP Address Pool).

Even after rebuilding the IP Address Pool you will notice that you still cannot install an SSL to a previously used IP.

To fix this you must first assign the IP address to a new domain name using "Account Functions >> Change Site's IP Address".

Once you've changed the site's IP address simply install the SSL using the "SSL/TLS >> Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain" tool as per normal but this time you don't have to specify an IP address in this form.
