    Hi. I'm a cPanel newbie, and to some extent, an Apache newbie as well. I am the site administrator for cPanel. That is, I have access to WHM.

    Through WHM, I created a site (virtual host). I can log in as the admin for the virtual host via https.
    That is, I go to https://example.com:2083. (No, the FQDN is not example.com. I'm not that much of a newbie.) Everything works fine there. I succesfully set up a site at the virtual host, and I can view it via http just fine. However, I would also like to go to the same site with https. The problem is that when I go to https://example.com via Mozilla/Firefox, I get the error, "The connection to example.com has terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred.". If I use MSIE, I get a "Cannot find server" error.

    Via cPanel, I went into the "SSL Manager" and I generated an SSL key and an SSL certificate. Is there something else I'm missing?

    My guess is that it is the firewall, since I need to listen on port 443. Does cPanel have a tool to configure the firewall, or is it safe to just edit the iptables rules like I would on a Linux workstation? (BTW, I'm running Red Hat Enterprise 3 on the server.)

    Is there some apache configuration I would need as well? :confused:

    https for cpanel access works, coz cpanel has the default cert installed.

    if u want to have access via https://example.com, then u need to get a cert from any cert signing authority and install it via WHM for the domain.
