Hi previously we’ve generate apple push certificates using Mac OS server on el captain as the newer versions don’t work.
However, we no longer have a Mac with the old os on.

I found the apple online portal which shows the certificates for OS X server, above that we can generate a certificate for 3rd party services.

is this the new way? Can these be used the same as those generated in Mac OS server?
has anyone tried?

Hello again! Unfortunately, it appears this may not work as expected. I was unable to get this set up and functioning in my own environment. Additionally, it appears that we have an open case with our internal development team, CPANEL-33618, that affects cPanel iOS Mail Push Notifications. You can find more information on this case here:

cPanel iOS Mail Push Notifications (APNs) aren't working

Luckily we had a high sierra mac mini which had server installed.
I managed to generate a new push certificate there, export and install in cpanel. It's now valid until 2022.

I notice the link you sent says they are not working as Apple now only support http2. I'm not sure what format the one is I've just created but ios push email still appears to work ok in testing.

To update on this, as per the cpanel link above, mail is not updating automatically

I mean that mail on an ios device does not update.

Ipad is on 14.2
Iphone on 14.6

Mail shows say 5 emails, delete the 5 on desktop.
Receive 2 new emails

IOs and ipadOS still show 5 emails in the red dot.

Receive one email with Gmail... ios shows 6 emails.

Cpanel emails don't update yet they are all set on push and a valid certificate installed
