    Hello,

    There is no tool to move SSL alone betwee servers. If you do a complete account transfetr via cPanel account restore, it will bring the SSL along with it! If you just want to move SSL only, use the SSL install utility from WHM on new server and copy paste the crt, key and ca bundle manually from old server.

    Thank you,
    Nibin.

    do you mean, if i pkgacct the site, all SSL certificate will be included?
    But, it has different IP address because SSL must have own IP. how about that?

    If copy ca bundle, etc, at new server i need to create CSR first, right?
    but i dont remeber what information i put at old server like password, etc.
    how about that?

    Thanks.

    You can first transfer account to new sever. After this, assign dedicated IP address to your website having SSL certificate on new server.

    1. Grab a copy of /usr/share/ssl/private/domainname.key and /usr/share/ssl/certs/domainname.cert and /usr/share/ssh/certs/domainname.cabundle (save them locally somewhere)
    2. Go to the ssl/tls section of whm on new server and click on "Install an SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain"
    3. Paste the cert in
    4. Then the key
    5. Then doublecheck the domain, user, and IP (it may have automatically filled some of those - enter any it missed - if it doesnt supply a cabundle, paste the cabundle too)
    6. Click "DO IT"
