hello

Trying to delete certs from server using cPanel and keep getting this error:

The Certificate for domain.com has been deleted.
The Certificate for domain.com cannot be fully deleted, because it is installed in the system ssl directory!
Also,in whm, there are no ssl hosts setup but ssl manager show me lots of keys such as:

domain.com.key.1164970620 and domain.com.key.old.1164970685
I thought that whm deleted these keys. are they active? I have checked the domain ssl folder and there is nothing in there. Any gurus offer any advice. many thanks.

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.
