    by the way,
    if you dont fancy paying for a certificate,
    you can just create the account, then generate the SSL cert and signing request and then click on install an SSL certificate and setup the domain,
    this will setup SSL on the domain with a self signed certificate,
    Thanks :)

    Dummy question...

    Alright, dummy question to make SSL work for clients..

    SSL is already in use as cPanel/webmail and WHM are all using https for access.
    What do I have to do to get https://mydomain.com/~client1/ssl_folder/ accept ssl connections?

    When it comes to SSL I'm a real newbie, so any tips would be nice :)

    One has to add an entry in httpd.conf in apache right? For the virtualhost.. or?

    Got that one working alright, one question though. The certificate has to be renewed each and every month. Is there a way around this?
