    Hello again,
    I again have a confusion and its about installing an SSL Cert to my server hostname so that users can securely login to cPanel...

    and my question is: Will I be needing another Dedicated IP for that?

    Hello :)

    You can actually install the SSL certificate for cPanel/WHM without an additional IP address. To install a certificate for cPanel/WHM, you would use the following option:

    "WHM >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates"

    This is documented at:

    Manage Service SSL Certificates

    Thank you.

    okay thanks... but its "Service Configuration" not Server :p

    another question... I've bought a PositiveSSL, can I use it on all the services? like SMTP, cPanel, FTP...

    Yes, you can use the same certificate for all the services available under "Manage Service SSL Certificates".

    Thank you.

    What about Apache though?

    I am having an issue where I have setup the ssl cert (it is a wildcard) and I have set it up using the nobody user, and I have set it up as the shared ssl certificate on the server.

    The services have all been enabled using the certificate and it works without any issue, however if I go to https://host.myhostname.com it is giving me the old ssl certificate expiration date, but if I go to https://host.myshostname.com/whm it is giving me the proper expiry date.
