    After installing SSL certificates I found out that the only way to actually use SSL with whm&cpanel is to use the port directly.

    This means that https://test.domain.com:2087 works but that
    https://test.domain.com/whm does not work

    (the same problem with cpanel).

    Is this just an oversight in version 7.2 R39?

    Since encryption should be standard when transmitting username and password combinations I think it would make sense to have the full URL work as well with https and not just the port number itself.

    Can someone from the cpanel team include this detail in the next release?

    Alternatively... You can always make a redirect... yourself :)
    But, I agree. Cpanel team, how come this doesn't work? :)

    take a peek at your httpd.conf file

    by definition the script alias for /cpanel is to go to the redirect.cgi which of course goes to the unsecure http://www.yourdomain.com:2082

    just change the alias from "redirect.cgi" to "sredirect.cgi"
    and use www.yourdomain.com/cpanel (without http:// or https://) and it will take you to the secure server
    Code:
    ScriptAlias /cpanel /usr/local/cpanel/base/sredirect.cgi
    
    do the same for the alias for /whm
    Code:
    ScriptAlias /whm /usr/local/cpanel/base/swhmredirect.cgi
