    I have some domains that use certificates from other providers which will expire in 20 days. I would like to force Autossl to replace those certificates. How can I do that in a way that it will not affect the uptime of the websites? I thought to remove the certificates first but I will need to wait until autossl issue a certificate and combined with the fact that those website use HSTS it would cause a period of non accessible websites.

    I believe there is an option for this in the settings area of manage AutoSSL, though I haven't tried it yet.

    Hello,

    The following option is available under the "Options" tab in "WHM >> Manage AutoSSL":

    Allow AutoSSL to replace invalid or expiring non-AutoSSL certificates.

    Per the option description, this option will allow AutoSSL to replace certificates that the AutoSSL system did not issue. When you enable this option, AutoSSL will install certificates that replace users’ CA-issued certificates if they are invalid or about to expire.

    In addition, it notes the following warning:

    Unless you fully understand this option, do not select it, because the system could unexpectedly replace an expiring or invalid EV or OV certificate with a DV certificate.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thank you.

    What if you only want to force AutoSSL to replace a certificate for one account only? Is this possible?

    You could completely disable AutoSSL for all accounts except for one, however it's not currently possible to enable "Allow AutoSSL to replace invalid or expiring non-AutoSSL certificates" on a per-account basis. Feel free to open a feature request if you'd like to see that functionality:

    Thank you.
