    Hi there,

    I've recently purchased cPanel on Friday and installed it as normal and works. It also had a self-signed SSL installed aswell by default. I have purchased SSL from cloudflare and has now replaced the self signed certificates.
    (from red https to green https). Now that I have the green https, cPanel/WHM & cPanel DNSONLY are now triggering "Invalid Security Token". Here are some screenshots I have done to help you understand.

    Login >> - Removed - (Normal login takes me to this so it does know my account details)

    Logged in again >> - Removed - (After logging in again & 401 invalid security token appears)

    Same on another server I have, however no 401 appeared. However is present in the dev tools >> - Removed -

    Entered password for security token >> Does nothing, diverts back to 401 again.

    I use Chrome as my main browser and have cleared all cookies and cache. I have performed the same on Internet Explorer and I receive the same results... 401 remains. The 401 is random.

    This started happening ever since I've purchased SSL from cloudflare (green https). It worked fine with a self-signed SSL (red https).

    I am unsure what has happened and I am now seeking for your support to help have this issue resolved.

    I am using cPanel/WHM 11.44.1 & cPanel DNSONLY 11.44.1.

    Thank you. :)

    Hi there,

    After doing some googling, I've eventually found the fix for it. Had to turn off "Cookie IP Validation" as cPanel/WHM I've installed was running on my server running behind cloudflare. When I connect to it through cloudflare, it changes my IP and that was the cause of the HTTP ERROR 401. All fixed now anyway. :)

    It is now safe to close this thread.
