Hi, I'd like to manually install certbot so I can play around with trying to genrate a wildcard certificate. I want to ensure I DO NOT interfere with the current cPanel SSL process, so it it safe to just follow the below instructions to install certbot? https://pocketadmin.tech/en/install-certbot-on-centos/#Install_Certbot_on_CentOS_7_with_nginx_apache

yum install epel-release
yum install certbot python2-certbot-apache


I don't plan on using the apache method for validation, so the below would probably suffice?

yum install certbot

Thanks

Hey there! My best advice would be to try it out - the SSLs created through cPanel can always be reissued if something were to go wrong, and since those are free, there really isn't a risk of destroying anything.

While we're pretty good at knowing what cPanel does, we aren't as good at saying what negative interactions could happen from third-party software, as that just isn't something we test on our end.

Thanks cPRex! I managed to install certbot on a different host, and create the wildcard certificate from there.
