    I've searched the forum but I don't really see anything that explains how to do this properly.

    I want to replace the self-signed SSL cert in WHM with one from Geotrust or SecureSSL, etc. so no browser warnings continue to pop up, clients can use SSL for POP3, etc.

    How do I do this? What hostname should I generate the CSR for? The machine's hostname is max.serveralpha.com but some logs seem to think they are connecting to server.serveralpha.com.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    In WHM click here:

    Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request

    Fill in all the data, making sure to use the server hostname.

    It will email you the CSR which you then use to buy the cert.

    Once you get the cert, click on:

    Change cPanel/WHM Certificate

    And past the cert in.

    That's it!
