    Done

    Hi,
    Er! I tried this like 10 times. Removed the key and all the httpd lines for the ssl. Reinstalled whole cert in whm and still the same error message.

    FREESSL STEP

    Generate CSR in WHM - DONE

    Enter CSR into freessl choose modssl as server- yep everything looks good

    Go through all the steps for the cert, get the cert enter the cert into whm with the -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- lines intact

    Enter RSA with -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- intact

    Enter the full domain name as specified in the CSR request enter username and click do it

    and..................

    I hope you don't mean you deleted your initial key when you say 'removed'. That key is the only thing that will allow you to make your CRT work. Never delete the key that was used when you generated the CSR that you used for your CRT.

    You have used a mismatch key/Cert.

    If you want to become more familiar with SSL try

    Installing fake SSL Web Certificate

    You can create fake web certificate and install it for testing purposes if you don’t know how to create a fake certificate go to this URL and create one for testing purposes only

    http://snakeoil.haisee.com/freecerts.php

    Attention: Fake web certificates are not trusted in client browsers, also there are some legal issues with them (they are illegal in production environments) Thus Never use fake certificates for production environments.
