I am beta testing a brand new CPanel/CloudLinux (sorry cannot provide more specific details as I do not have root access from home) virtual server for our school. I tried to clone a public GitHub repo (a WordPress theme I host) both via the command line and by the CPanel interface. I used <git clone https://xxxx.git> and receive this error message:

Commandline:

Cloning into 'repo-folder'...
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/user/repo/': error:140943E8:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:reason(1000)


CPanel:

IT seems to think the access denied is at the GitHub end. I think we're not even making out of the server. Anyone encounter this error and what is needed to solve it?

Hi!
Yes, I followed the steps for cloning a repo as described in the link you posted: git clone https://domain/repo.git repo
Turns out that the repo can be cloned if I install a Wordpress plugin that forces https on that web site.

All the domain/subdomains have the "AutoSSL Domain Validated" under SSL/TLS Status, however the site loads as http only. I do get the "Note: You don’t have a dedicated IP address." Could that be the reason for lack of https?
