    Hi all,

    I bought and installed an SSL cert for a domain on my server and use it for people logging into webmail.
    I wanted to use the same cert for dovecat and exim so people can send/recieve email over ssl with a valid cert but every time I change it in WHM on manage SSL's it just keep changing back to the default for the server.

    Does anybody know why it might be doing this?

    Thank you

    Hello :)

    Do you have any cron jobs configured that could be resetting the certificate? Does the same certificate remain installed for other services such as cPanel/WHM?

    Thank you.

    Hi Micheal,

    I have seen a lot about cron jobs but im not entirely sure what they are, other than scheduled jobs. Where would I check if that is the case please? It would make sense in that it doesn't happen straight away.

    If it helps I got the server from a fresh install and I didnt create any cron jobs myself

    Thank you
    Andy

    To update, this issue was not reproducible. The original poster plans to purchase a SSL certificate for the hostname of the server instead of the individual domain name for use with services.

    Thank you.
