Hi,

I have a client that had an expired SSL cert on one of his accounts/domains. I removed the old SSL cert, and tried to install a new one like I have in the past for other clients.. But for some reason I keep getting this error message after I try installing the new cert via cpanel/whm.

The SSL install failed because an error occurred while updating the Apache configuration file:
Syntax error on line 1 of [Test Configuration File]:

Invalid command 'php_admin_flag', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

I am running Apache 2.2.24, WHM 11.38.0 (build 16). Domain is still on it's own IP address.

Anyone have a clue what is going on here? Where can I find this Test Configuration File at?

Thanks much.

Hello :)

Could you try rebuilding the Apache configuration file to see if you notice the same error message? You can do this with this command:

Code:
# /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf
Or, check to see if you have any custom entries in your Apache configuration that use the "php_admin_flag" line, as it will need to be removed.

Thank you.
