Hello,

I did go as root to SSL/TLS -> Generate a SSL Certificate and Signing Request
filled the form , pressed Create , then I recieve at the email the message "domainl.tld CSR Generation for halandrideal.gr"
I used that CSR to order an SSL certificate.
When I got the certificate on my email I did try to install it to cpanel and I get the error:


Error from ssl wrapper: Modulus mismatch, key file does not match certificate. Please use the correct key file


Any ideas?

Hello :)

Please try pasting the CRT provided by your SSL provider into the first field under:

"WHM >> SSL/TLS >> Install a SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain"

The rest of the fields (minus the CA Bundle) should populate automatically with the correct data after you do this.

Thank you.

the problem was in the private key,
as soon as I pasted the certificate key cpanel would populate automatically the private key,
but I did issue 2 CSR's and the 1st one was the wrong one, i did find the private key from the email of the second CSR and paste it , and it worked.

thank you for the reply anyway.
