    Hi,

    I can't find in documentation.

    When users is adding new additional domain, and then he is changeing dns record for this domain directing to this new server - how fast AutoSSL will try to generate new cert?

    Is it only once in 24h ? (cron job for autoSSL is default set to 10:30pm).

    Or it will be done faster ?

    I understand that propagation of dns records will take, but how often autoSSL will try to issue new certificate ?

    W.

    Hi,

    If the AutoSSL is enabled for the user, then the AutoSSL generation usually starts fast, but you will have to check AutoSSL logs for more details whether there has been any validation issue that may have caused the SSL to fail or something. You can view the AutoSSL logs in the AutoSSL section of the WHM panel itself..

    Hello,

    The AutoSSL check runs upon the creation of a new account and upon the addition of a new domain name to an existing account. Additionally, it runs once daily for all accounts as part of the following cron job:

    Code:
    # cat /etc/cron.d/cpanel_autossl
    25   5   *   *   *   root   /usr/local/cpanel/bin/autossl_check --all
    If the domain does not yet resolve to the cPanel server at the time of the initial AutoSSL check, then it isn't checked again until the next scheduled check via the above cron job. Additionally, users can manually run the AutoSSL check using the SSL TLS Status option in cPanel at anytime:

    SSL TLS Status - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
