    Hello,
    where I find the procedure in order to generate in WHM a certificate SSL for a domain and to install it?
    I have watched on the handbook, but the procedure creed is for one old version of WHM.

    Thanks
    Antonello

    You need to first Generate CSR ( Certificate Signining Request) for a domain..
    In the WHM under SSL/TLS
    click on "Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request"
    And fill in the details..
    CSR and a key will be generated.
    After you got the SSL certificate and Key file..
    Open the WHM -> SSL/TLS -> Install an SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain
    And paste the crt and key files and fill in the domain name.
    Finally click on DO IT..
    :)

    Well,
    I have just an account with reseller privilege... Wher I setup these account with reseller privilege, I have also checked "Enabling/Disabling SSL Support" in Reseller Center.

    Now, when I login with these account in WHM, I found on left menu in "SSL/TLS" only:
    - Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request
    - Install an SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain
    while when I login in WHM with root account, I found:
    - Change cPanel/WHM Certificate
    - Reset cPanel/WHM Certificate
    - SSL Manager
    - Purchase & Install SSL Certificate
    - List SSL Hosts
    - Delete an SSL Host
    - Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request
    - Install an SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain

    right?

    ok... now if I want to give to reseller the possibility to create/install SSL for his domain... how I must make?
    When I login with reseller account, I don't found a .crt file.

    You have understood?

    Thank in advice,
    Antonello

    Yeah I just noticed that a reseller can not create a CSR. When I used one of my reseller WHMs to create one I got the following error...

    cp: cannot stat `/usr/share/ssl/private/www.domain.name.com.key': No such file or directory
