    It doesn't work that way - if it did, anyone could compromise the security of your certificate. If you don't have the private key, the only thing you can do is generate a new CSR (which will generate a new key) and re-issue the certificate.

    If you generated the CSR on a cPanel server, and still have access to that same server, the key might still be stored there. Otherwise, as Vanessa said, you will need to make a new CSR and key to get a new certificate.
