Hello,

I installed the "Let's Encrypt" plugin for cPanel and selected the Let's Encrypt provider in whm .The test you can run on websites like "whynopadlock" says i passed all the tests but for some reason the SSL certificate still displays "Verified by cPanel" while that should be "Verified by Let's Encrypt" it's just a detail but it bothers me when people know i have a cPanel server well that is private information in my opinion.

I also found an older post Change cPanel SSL certificates to let's encrypt is that the solution to this issue ? i'm not sure.

It sounds like you have the cPanel (powered by Sectigo) set as the AutoSSL provider (or at least it was set) and then you came back and changed it to Let's Encrypt? If that's true Let's Encrypt is not going to replace those certs at least until it's about to expire. the cPanel/Sectigo certs are valid for a year, while the Let's Encrypt ones are 90 days.

Hello,

I remember a while ago i was tired of the ssl warning firefox browser gives you i must have activated the Sectigo stuff but the thing is when cPanel is mentioned people also know /cpanel , /whm (dedicated or reseller hosting) /webmail etc etc are priviledged urls just a detail but it bothers me maybe i'm paranoid
