    Hey ALL,

    Here is the deal with me, I did the search for all of the SSL issues mentioned here on the forum, didn't see the solution that I am looking for since most of what you are talking about is "Shared SSL" and I am not at all interested in that.

    I have had my dedicated server for a little over a year. I was selling space to only my clients and none of them was needing to access their content by any means except that it is working and the e-mails were flowing.

    Over the last few weeks I was getting some inquiries for hosting from others that were asking for so I contacted my server company and we installed CPANEL UNLIMITED LIC.

    Anyway, the point is this, everyone of my clients before were using open ssl, I had httpdoc/ and httpsdoc/ and all they had to do was upload to the correct folder. When accessing the reservations systems or members areas of the sites the clients were redirected to https://domain.com and it was their domain, their secure server.

    Now here in the CPANEL although I see a place to set up the SSL certificate what I don't see as we had in versions of plesk and all was when setting up the domain where to select that they have ssl? I tried creating certificates and I have the keys and all from the old server and tried installing ssl but to no avail. There is noplace to upload https content.

    What my clients are not looking for is shared ssl, they want their own and each is on their own IP so what can I do?

    Do I have to go outside of cpanel and configure it in apache seperate, write manually the httpd.conf file and set all of the variables? Will that affect anything in CPANEL?

    Thanks for any information.

    The https content location is the same as the http location, which is /home/username/public_html

    If you require a completely separate location for httpsdocs (like plesk does) you will need to edit httpd.conf manually for the ssl vhost.
