    I have a wildcard SSL Cert for my domain, and I would like to install it on my cluster of DNS-Only servers. There isn't the usual SSL/TLS config options for DNS-Only installs, so how would I go about doing this?

    If it's not possible, it isn't too big of a deal, more of a "get it installed so Chrome stops barking at me that my connection is "insecure"".

    Thanks!

    Hello :)

    You can install a certificate for services such as cPanel/WHM via:

    "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Manage Service SSL Certificates"

    Thank you.

    Hello :),

    I just attempted to install a wildcard SSL certificate on a DNS only WHM server via the Manage Service SSL certs option but it appears as a self-signed cert?


    Service Current Certificate Actions
    cPanel/WHM/Webmail Service
    Issuer: ST = London, O = My Organisation, CN = *.mydomain.net, C = GB, L = London, emailAddress = xxx@mydomain.net

    Subject: ST = London, O = My Organisation, CN = *.mydomain.net, C = GB, L = London, emailAddress = xxx@mydomain.net
    Self Signed: YES

    Was the certificate purchased from a trusted SSL vendor? Did you install the CABundle with the certificate? Note that services do not currently support multiple SSL hosts so you may want to ensure you use an actual hostname instead of a wildcard entry.

    Thank you.
