    I'm on v66.0.4.

    When I create a new user and visit it over SSL, I'm getting these error messages from:

    Google Chrome: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR
    Mozilla Firefox: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

    I've noticed the following work around: WHM >> Apache Configuration >> Global Configuration >> Just save it, so httpd.conf wil be rebuilded again.

    Because of this issue AutoSSL throws these errors:

    SSL connection failed for domain.nl: SSL connect attempt failed error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol.

    The work around stops working after some time. Constantly the SSL error.

    Hello,

    It's possible this relates to internal case CPANEL-14678 where Apache virtual host entries were inserted at the wrong location. This is fixed in cPanel version 66.0.5:

    Fixed case CPANEL-14678: Fix broken httpd.conf parsing of post virtualhost includes.

    Additionally, the following command should correct the issue on systems that are not yet updated to 66.0.5:

    Code:
    /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf


    Thank you.
