    Hello, Since two weeks, I had notificatios about expiration of my ssl certificate (I never installed it before). So I generate an autosigned ceriticate.

    I installed it into whm following the instructions and now, all users (domains) i have hosted in my server has this problem:
    //
    Certificate Common Name (CN) and Hostname Match?
    The hostname (domain.com) does NOT match the Common Name in the certificate (xxx.domain.com). This certificate is currently invalid for this host.
    //

    And also: The certificate is invalid.

    My question: How to solve this? Because i discover that all the emails i send go to spam folder... :( And think that is the problem.

    Question 2: Is there any way to remove certificate of all my domains? I don't need certificate, but I installed it into whm in >> Manage service SSL Certificate


    Thank

    Hello :),

    You might be talking about Self-Signed SSL on your server which causes browser warnings. If you are getting Invalid certificate warning, then you should check the Hostname of your server. Then you can just reset the Certificate

    https://documentation.cpanel.net/di...anageServiceSSLCertificates-ResetaCertificate

    It is advised to use this Self-Signed SSL temporarily, until a valid certificate authority issues a signed certificate to replace it.

    Yes, I'm using a self-sifned SSL. But I only want to use it on root account (whm), not in domains. Is it possible?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    How did you install the self-signed certificate? You should have done this via
    WHM => Service Configuration => Manage Service SSL Certificates.

    If you did this via:
    WHM => SSL/TLS => Install an SSL Certificate On A Domain

    Then that is incorrect.

    The first option should be used for WHM/cPanel/Webmail etc. (and is for cpsrvd). The second option is for Apache and encompasses all domains.

    Hello

    I install self-signed certificate as you typed the first option, but i generate the own certificate in :

    SSL/TSL => Generate a certificate SSL and self signed

    In the form, in domains field, I fill it with the host name. IE: ns5.mydomain.com

    Is this correct?

    Hello,

    No, you should remove the ssl certificate for your hostname from the SSL section in WHM. For your hostname it should ONLY be installed via Service Configuration => Manage Service SSL Certificates
