    Hi
    I have a problem after installing cpanel. On the default domain, it seems I can't access SSL. This domain is accessed by IP address i.e http://192.168.0.1/. I first noticed the error because when I went to https://192.168.0.1 the server gave me a ssl_error_rx_record_too_long error. Now when I went to http://192.168.0.1:443, I get the usual http page showing. How is it possible for me to get it to show use SSL with cpanel? I just need to use it on an encrypted channel so I'm not going to worry about getting paid for certificates or anything like that.

    Thanks for any help

    That's not a proper IP address, you'll need to install cPanel on a server with a public dedicated IP address.

    I was using that as an example address, but the problem remains the same

    Just to clarify, I'm checking the apache error logs when I make a https request and i get these messages:
    [Wed Apr 06 09:52:25 2011] [error] [client x.x.x.x] Invalid method in request \x16\x03\x01
    [Wed Apr 06 09:52:25 2011] [error] [client x.x.x.x] File does not exist: /usr/local/apache/htdocs/501.shtml

    Is the host.name.com setup properly?

    Is the domainname.com setup properly?

    In WHM > Service Configuration > Manage Service SSL Certificates you can update the service certs.
