    Hello,

    Could someone please explain the difference between these two settings:

    • "Always redirect to SSL" in Tweak Settings > Redirection
    • "Require SSL" in Tweak Settings > Security
    I've read the documentation but I'm still a little confused.

    Hello :)

    The "Require SSL" option forces users to access cPanel/WHM/Webmail services via SSL. The "Always redirect users to the SSL/TLS ports" option redirects access attempts from "/cpanel, /whm, /webmail" to the SSL ports. However, unless "Require SSL" is enabled, users can still access the services without SSL by visiting the non-SSL ports directly.

    Thank you.
