    Have you installed certificate for cPanel/WHM only OR for a particular domain?

    check /usr/share/ssl/certs . Do you see the files there ?

    1. Uninstall certicicates using WHM (will see error like mentioned above);
    2. rm domain.com.key and domain.com.crt files via SSH;
    3. Install cPanel/WHM SSL (NOT Web SSL);
    4. service cpanel restart in SSH
    5. Install web ssl for your desired domain (can be same as the one used for cPanel);
    6. Restart Apache (via WHM).

    Should work smooth after that :)

    sorry kelmas, seem to be slightly confused.

    1: whm > there is no option to uninstall certs in whm only what i am seeing as stated in earlier post.

    2: clear

    3: cPanel/WHM SSL is already installed?

    4: clear

    5: web SSL?

    6: clear

    Can you please expand on the unclear points. Thank you.

    1. SSL/TLS > Reset Server Certificates (will convert WHM certificates to defaut self signed).
    3. After removing all key and cert files, make sure to follow 1 step and only then SSL/TLS > Change Server Certificates to install YOUR certificate to CPANEL/WHM.
    5. If you want to have https://yourdomain.tld (not only secure cPanel), open Web SSL/TLS > Install a SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain.
