    Hi,

    The "Manage OpenPGP Keys" feature is not working on my cpanel (RHE3 server). When I try to add a new key, it says key generated, but actually nothing happens.

    Then I manually created a directory .gnupg in the account, and tried again. Now it created the Public and Private keys. It created 4 files in the .gnupg directory, but gpg.conf is missing.

    Can someone guide me what is wrong and how to fix it?

    Thanks
    UKA

    It was not creating the directory

    It seems that it was not creating the .gnupg directory rights: 0777

    I created it, manually in the home directory of the customer.. and was able to create the keys for him..

    Still Have to find out what´s causing it to not create this directory

    This seems to still be an issue, even on WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.18.0-R20595 / CENTOS Enterprise 4.6 x86_64 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

    chmod 0777 the user's .gnupg dir allowed the generator to work. But this can't be correct; that directory should not be world writable etc; it should be locked down like .ssh is.
