    Hi,

    I have purchased an SSL cert for mydomain.uk, and added support for server1.mydomain.uk and www.mydomain.uk from comodoSSLStore.com.

    server1.mydomain.uk is my VPS FQDN, and I log in to WHM by going to server1.mydomain.uk/whm or server1.apluswebdesign.uk:2087.

    I need info on how to install the SSL cert to cover my WHM and CPanel install. I managed to get it to install and work at https://mydomain.uk and https://www.mydomain.uk, by installing the server and adding an account for mydomain.uk, but server1.mydomain.uk/whm still shows security errors.

    Can anyone offer any help/info?

    Thanks

    For the information of anyone who comes across this, I have figured out how to do this now:

    Main >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates

    FYI, after you have set up the SSL certificate, you can then force all /whm & /cpanel requests to forward to your server hostname over SSL in Tweak Settings.

    Handy to know incase you're looking for PCI Compliancy :)
