    I attempted to disable ssl v 3 on my server per these instructions:
    SSLv3 gets disabled by adding this to WHM » Service Configuration » Apache Configuration » Include Editor » Pre Main Include

    Code:
    SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3
    SSLCipherSuite EECDH+AES128:RSA+AES128:EECDH+AES256:RSA+AES256:EECDH+
    SSLHonorCipherOrder on


    Unfortunately I received the following error:
    Configuration problem detected on line 2 of file /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_main_global.conf.tmp: SSLCipherSuite takes one argument, Colon-delimited list of permitted SSL Ciphers (`XXX:...:XXX' - see manual) --- /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_main_global.conf.tmp --- 1SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3 2 ===> SSLCipherSuite <=== 3EECDH+AES128:RSA+AES128:EECDH+AES256:RSA+AES256:EECDH+ 4SSLHonorCipherOrder on --- /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_main_global.conf.tmp ---

    Has anyone seen this error? I am new to the forum so please let me know if this should be posted elsewhere.

    Hello,

    Can you please add only following two line through WHM » Service Configuration » Apache Configuration » Include Editor » Pre Main Include

    Code:

    Hello :)

    Could you let us know the existing content of the /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_main_global.conf file on your system? EX:

    Code:
    cat /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_main_global.conf
    Thank you.
