    Firefox is showing an error similar to this:
    Code:
    ---------
    example.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: othersite.com, mail.othersite.com, www.othersite.com
    ---------
    
    Note: example.com and othersite.com are placeholders only

    My questions are:

    1. What could cause this and how to fix it?

    2. How can we completely remove an SSL certificate from a Cpanel account?

    Hello,

    Do you have root access to this server? If so, are you using the AutoSSL feature (WHM >> Manage AutoSSL)?

    Thank you.

    Root yes.
    AutoSSL yes.

    The person who reported error says, they received a notification that SSL is expiring so they uninstalled it. Then this error appeared.

    AutoSSL should automatically attempt to install a new certificate for the removed domain name during the next check, however feel free to browse to "WHM >> Manage AutoSSL", choose "Manage Users", and click on "Check" for the username of the affected account to see if there are any errors.

    Thank you.
