    Ok I have a one cpanel server with about 60 hosts on it on a shared ip.

    One host installed a cert - worked ok, but they let it expire because they don't need it.

    Next customer who wanted one went into the SSL manager, generated their CSR, order the cert with it. When they installed it, loading the https url displayed the first customers expired cert.

    Ok, thats odd. I went into WHM and removed the ssl host for the first customer, then tried to install the second customers cert:

    Attempting to verify your certificate..... Modulus mismatch, key file does not match certificate. Please use the correct key file

    Key Modulus
    Modulus=blah blah

    Crt Modulus
    Modulus=blah blah

    I logged in user this users cpanel - it wont let me delete any keys or csrs


    Whats my next step? I am very confused.

    Tried giving them thier own ip - made no difference.

    Is the ip information contained in the csr? Going to be crappy if i need to get another cert made..

    Go on, have a guess
    The IP is not contained in the CSR - it's based purely on the FQDN domain name.

    Sounds like a problem with the vhost file. The virtual host is not pointing to the correct IP or file path maybe?

    (Also, SSL definately needs it's own unique/static IP...)
