    I've installed 15-20 regular SSLs without any problem, but when I try to install a wildcard SSL it times out every time. I was able to do it manually through SSH, but it didn't seem to work quite right as https://subdomain.domain.com would pull up the same thing as http://www.domain.com whereas http://subdomain.domain.com would pull up the right page. I don't even know where to start with this, but I'm guessing if I can get cPanel to install it then it'll work right.

    Make sure you have entered in named
    * IN A 86400 IP

    and in apache
    ServerAlias domain.com *.domain.com

    Where in named do you put that? In the zone declaration for the domain?

    cPanel Access Level:
    Root Administrator
    In the zone file for the domain. Thus, with the domain example.com, on Linux, the file is /var/named/example.com.db Edit that file and place the * IN A 86400 IP after the other entries on its own line.
