    I'm developing a system to use an API which requires a private key pair to be installed to OpenSSL. Firstly, will this affect anything on cPanel if I do it via command line and is there any way I can do it via WHM?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't need to generate a CSR. I have been given a .pem file to install onto the server so I can use curl to communicate with their server. I'm not looking to replace any cpanel services with my own CSR.

    If I did it via open SSL would it cause any ill effects on my server.

    No, it should not result in any problems with the existing SSL certificates on the system.

    Thank you.
