Hello,

Currently I installed the let's Encrypt plugin on my cpanel server, but the installation was done when the hostname had a default, but at this point I changed the hostname and is now presenting the error

[SELF-TEST] Has valid license ............ SUCCESS.
[SELF-TEST] Can read config ............ SUCCESS.
[SELF-TEST] Can connect to Let's Encrypt ............ SUCCESS.
[SELF-TEST] Can talk to WHM API ............ FAILED: Get https://myhostname.com:2087/json-api/listaccts?api.version=1: x509: certificate signed by unknown authority.
[SELF-TEST] Can talk to RPC plugin ............ SUCCESS.

Would there be any way to update let's encrypt settings to recognize the new hostname without having to re-install it?

Thank you

Hello,

You'll need to use cPanel-signed (Comodo) as your AutoSSL provider if you want to take advantage of the free SSL certificates for the server's hostname. You could temporary switch your AutoSSL provider in "WHM >> Manage AutoSSL" and then follow the instructions on the following document to update your server's hostname certificate:

Free cPanel-Signed Hostname Certificate - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
