    Greetings,

    I've recently purchased and installed my own SSL cert and access to my secure url (https://www.mydomain.com) is working fine.

    However, access to CPanel and WHM over HTTPS is still using the dummy cert localhost.localdomain.

    What should I and/or my host do to set the secure CPanel and WHM access to use my cert ?

    Thank You.

    Go on, have a guess
    You would also have to install it under WHM > Change Server Certificates > cPanel/WHM Server

    Unfortunately, there is no such option in my WHM. I guess my host has been disabled it.
    Furthermore, i just have a reseller account. Would changing the server cert not affect that whole server/the other accounts on that server ?

    Thank You.

    you do not have root accces as secure whm/cpanel usees TLS (stunnel) under root nothing you can do about unless you can talk you host into using your certificate but I doubt they will :D

    thx dalem,
    and I doubt it as well.

    Actually, after my initial post, I googled for this issue (my bad, I know. Should have been done them in reversed order). From what I've found out, I didn't any longer put much hope that it will work.

    Thank you.
