    You need to have your &cert& before you can do &https& do you not?

    You can login as root via https without having a &real& certificate.
    I can't really explain it technically but others maybe will give you a good technical answer.

    If one is using the &Self Signed Certificate&, is that why it will show the URL of: http://delusions.cpanel.net/ in the Cert?

    When you install WHM/cPanel it installs a Self Signed Certificate. These work fine, but are not usually trusted.[/quote:37631d6922]

    I agree. That's why I said in my first post in this thread : &https://ip:2087 is better , doesn't make much difference &b&(for known reasons)&/b& but I believe it's better. &
