    Please be excused for my stupid question as I have just migrated from another CP - Direct Admin.

    I have installed the SSL here:


    When I am using Direct Admin in the past, there is a private_html folder in the same location of the public_html which I need to setup a symbolic link. However, I cannot find any private_html with my current cpanel setup???

    So where is the folder to hold the HTTPS?




    I have tried the following syntax over SSH, but failed:

    [~]# cd /home/username

    [/home/username]# ln -s ./public_html ./ssl/private


    or in fact, there is no such step to setup a Symbolic Link with cPanel?

    Sincere thanks for anyone who could help to dim some lights to me :eek:

    It uses the same files, public_html, and just calls for them through https instead.
