    Hello :)

    Could you let us know the specific error message you received when entering the key that you generated through cPanel?

    Thank you.

    Please try generating a new CSR/Key, and then trying again. Are you using a self-signed certificate or did you purchase one from a SSL provider?

    Thank you.

    Do you have root access to this server? If not, could you report this issue to your hosting provider so they can take a closer look?

    Thank you.
