    I operate a small VPS and I just installed a SSL Certificate on that server for one of my sites. When you go to https://www.domain.com/mail it works for taking the user to a secure page for webmail access. But when you go to https://www.domain.com:2083 to login to cpanel you get security error. I do not have a vaild SSL for the server, and it seems that it is trying to change the secure login from that users SSL to the servers. Is that right, can I change that?

    In WHH, go to SSL > Change Server Certificates, select "cPanel/WHM Server", and paste in your certificate information. You may need to restart the cPanel/WHM server for this change to take effect.

    There is no ssl for the server, this ssl is for a specific domain on the server. Do I need to also have an ssl for the server is I plan to use secure cpanel login? It will not work with the users domain ssl?

    The Default https://ip:2087 use self-signed SSL Certificated, thats why you get SSL warning. when you try to access using the browser which does not have your SSL certificate auth saved in. If the customer accessed one time and not cleared the SSL certificate cache, they will not get the same warning again.


    If you don't want that warning, you need to get New certificate for your server ip or hostname, and install it for WHM and CPanel. Which will remove the SSL warning when you try to access.

    But default setup does offer decent security, but it does gives a warning saying this is a self-signed certificate

    hope that helps
