    Hi, when i run AutoSSL i can see in Log an error about cpanel proxy subdomain

    Code:
    PM WARN The domain “cpanel.domain.xy” failed domain control validation: The system queried for a temporary file at 
    “<a href="https://cpanel.domain.xy/404.shtml">https://cpanel.domain.xy/404.shtml</a>”, 
    which was redirected from “<a href="http://cpanel.domain.xy/.well-known/acme-challenge/P16VHOARP6QLTKX3JQT8B6JQ38_ZW54G">
    http://cpanel.domain.xy/.well-known/acme-challenge/P16VHOARP6QLTKX3JQT8B6JQ38_ZW54G</a>”. 
    The web server responded with the following error: 401 (Access Denied). A <abbr title="Domain Name System">DNS</abbr> or web server misconfiguration may exist.
    How can i generate a Lets encrypt SSL for proxy subdomain?

    Hello,

    Do you have any custom "cpanel" subdomains added to the account, or configured as part of a custom configuration on the server or account?

    Thank you.
