    Hi Everyone ,
    I just generated a SSL Certificate using letsencrypt client from my local machine. I own a shared hosting plan from HostDime. In the SSL/TLS Manager i just have three options :

    1 : Private Keys (KEY)

    Generate, view, upload, or delete your private keys.


    2: Certificate Signing Requests (CSR)
    Generate, view, or delete SSL certificate signing requests.


    3: Certificates (CRT)
    Generate, view, upload, or delete SSL certificates.

    Thats all . I uploaded the private key and certificate but have no options to install it.
    Really confused about it .

    Thanks ,
    - @parth

    Hello,

    Let's Encrypt is only supported as part of the AutoSSL feature and the Let's Encrypt plugin:

    The Let's Encrypt Plugin - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    You won't be able to utilize this feature without root access to the system. I suggest contacting your web hosting provider to see if it's something they will consider implementing.

    If you are installing your own private SSL certificate, you can do so via the following option in cPanel:

    Activate and Manage SSL on Your Website - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    When browsing to the SSL/TLS option under "Security" in cPanel, click on the following link:

    "Install and Manage SSL for your site (HTTPS)"

    You may want to contact your web hosting provider if this option is not available on your account.

    Thank you.
