    How could I do this on a shared hosting account? I have access to the scripts directory, but there aren't any files in it.

    Hello,

    It's not possible to utilize scripts within the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts directory if you don't have root access to the system. Could you elaborate a little on the specific issue you are facing? Have you contacted your web hosting provider for assistance?

    Thank you.

    I was hoping to rebuild /home/user/ssl/ssl.db, where "user" is my account on a shared hosting plan, not the root one.

    My hosting company does not support Lets Encrypt, so I'm using a PHP client to generate and install SSL certificates in the certificate directory, in place of the old certificate files. Until now, I've just been deleting the ssl.db and ssl.db.cache files after updating the certificates, as they're created again the next time I view my certificates. If I can't rebuild the SSL database script-wise, will this work instead without unintended consequences?
