    I've been attempting to set up an SSL host on my dedicated server for quite some time. I've tried both via cPanel for a domain, and via WHM. The domain is set up on its own dedicated IP, and I am attempting to use self signed certificates (as this is just for test purposes). However, despite the setup seeming to go fine (WHM doesn't complain about anything, nor does cPanel) and the entry being in the httpd.conf file the secure site still does not resolve. I even went so far as to go through and remove all of the ifdefine directives around the SSL module, and the pag still would not load.
    My process was as follows:
    Generate key in cPanel
    Generate certificate in cPanel
    Install certificate in cPanel
    - Site does not resolve and is not in httpd.conf
    Use root WHM to install certificate
    Restart Apache
    - Site does not resolve, and is in httpd.conf
    Recompile Apache to ensure SSL support is enabled
    Modify httpd.conf to remove all ifdefine entries for SSL
    Restart Apache
    - Site does not resolve
    Revert to old httpd.conf
    Ask for help here

    Also, the self signed SSL certificate for my server cPanel/WHM has expired. Is there any easy way to renew it? I've tried the reset server certificates option in WHM with no apparent effect.

    I am having the same problem.
    I am trying to install a self-signed ssl and I get no errors on the process. The SSL is listed in the List SSL hosts, but when I try to access it, the browser times out.

    Any ideas?
