    Hello,

    Is it possible to assign Positive SSL on cPanel page, for example: https://67.654.22.1:2087 with Positive SSL instate of standard cPanel SSL.

    Please help me, thanks.

    Positive SSL is simply a brand of SSL certificate. You can install it like any other SSL certificate. To install it for use with cPanel's interface, in the WebHost Manager click Main >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates. Note that the same certificate is used for cPanel, WHM and Webmail. You can also install the same certificate, or a different one if you desire, for use with the other services listed on the page.

    The certificates listed in Manage Service SSL Certificates do not affect your SSL Web sites in any way; none of the services listed uses Apache in any manner.

    The following section of our documentation should be helpful:

    Manage Service SSL Certificates

    Both are SSL-encrypted pages. https and port 2087 ensure that you are using SSL to access the WebHost Manager - the certificate is definitely being used for encryption. However, the two pages have nothing to do with each other. https://br.2localhost.info is your site, and it is served by Apache. https://br.2localhost.info:2087 is the WebHost Manager, and it is served by the cPanel daemon. It is not related in any way to Apache.

    If I browse https://br.2localhost.info:2087 and view the SSL certificate, it appears that a self-signed certificate is installed. Also, the certificate is for server.2localhost.info, not br2.localhost.info. Not only is the certificate self-signed, but it is for a different host from the one you are using to access the WHM. (If you browse https://br.2localhost.info:2087, and the certificate is for server.2localhost.info, the browser will always pop up a warning due to the mismatch. This is the browser doing this, not the server.)

    What is the server's hostname? Is it server.2localhost.info, or br.2localhost.info? Either way, I see what appears to be a self-signed certificate in the Web browser, so it does not appear that the SSL certificate that you purchased was properly installed.

    At this point I strongly recommend that you submit a ticket so that we can log into your server and view your configuration directly, and work with you individually and securely to properly install your cPanel/WHM/Webmail SSL certificate.
