    When I used it from WHM to generate a CSR for a domain that already had SSL
    (I used it for a second one, renewal) it also put the self-signed as the new certificate.

    So a site which already had a normal issued certificate, when I had generate a new one,
    without using "Install a SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain", just generate,
    it also installed the self-signed certificate and dropped the existing normal one.

    Is that normal behavior or a kind of bug ? :confused:
    Made me searching the normal issued certificate again all night.

    I haven't tested what you explain (maybe I have time later today to test) but...

    When you need to renew a certificate you can use the original CSR (signing Request), which you find in:
    WHM-> SSL/TLS -> SSL Key/Crt Manager

    The described behavior was changed in 11.38 (now in our EDGE tier).
