    When I tried to install a new SSL certificate through SSL/TLS>>Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain, I receive the following error:
    Code:
    The user "system" does not exist.
    I've tried the following commands to move the user "system" away, based on the suggestion from another thread:
    Code:
    mv /var/cpanel/users/system /root/
    /scripts/updateuserdomains
    But I still get the same error: The user "system" does not exist.

    My box is:
    CENTOS 6.5 x86_64 standard
    WHM 11.42.1 (build 13)


    Please help. Thanks!

    Hello,

    Please type the following:

    Code:
    # grep 'system' /etc/*
    
    See if any files come back that contain the system user.
