    I'm moving my cPanel account to new dedicated server using full backup under cPanel and restoring it in WHM on the new server. The account being moved has an SSL certificate installed.

    Do I need to install the SSL cert on the new server before restoring the cPanel account from the backup file or won't it be necessary as the full Backup also restores this?
    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Yes, the cpbackup is including with ssl so that no need to do anything for move ssl if you have full account backup. Just restore that backup.

    Hello,

    The certificate should install automatically if your server meets the following conditions:

    Otherwise, to upload an existing SSL certificate to your server, perform the following steps:
    1. Navigate to WHM's Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain interface (Home >> SSL/TLS >> Install an SSL Certificate on the Domain).
    2. Paste the certificate into the text box, or click Fetch to upload a *.crt file.
    3. Click Submit to install the certificate onto the server.
    Thank you.
