    My host just switched me from plesk to cpanel. I used to have a httpsdocs folder that we served a secure form from.

    Where in cpanel is the equivelent? Does my host have to do anything?

    Thanks and regards

    I did a search and found this question unanswered several times.

    Too bad.

    cpanel will not be on my next hosts systems. I hate it!

    This is a question best answered by your host, asumming you are reffering to shared SSL or do you have your own SSL cert?

    Yeah, too bad they can't help either, they referred me to this forum and documentation. Both of which I've found no help from.
    I'm very unhappy with this cpanel product so far. :(

    I'm willing to read and learn, there's nothing to read though regarding my issue. Everywhere I turn I'm told the ISP should know. Well they don't and they can't find a doc to help me either.

    Thanks for the reply, I think I'm letting my frustration over the move and change get the best of me.

    Old habits, change. blah!

    Anyway, I've been successful setting up a folder that I want secure and a url that points to it.

    Now I'd like to access that folder via ssl. (https)

    I currently have http://secure.mydomain.com/ working and pointing to a subfolder of my site. Could you point me to a doc on making that folder only accessable by using https and ssl instead of just http?

    Thanks and regards.

    The problem is if your host has not:
    1. setup shared SSL on their own cert
    2. installed the cert you purchased

    you won't have functioning SSL.

    Thanks, I have a cert and was hoping I could get it installed on my own. Apparently from what you say, the host needs to do it.

    Thanks for the reply. It's a clearer picture now that I've resolved myself to learning this and dropped the frustration.

    your host must install the cert. they can make it work with any directory you want to serve the pages from. let them pull their finger out.

    Thanks for the reply.

    What is being suggested is the secure.mydomain.com be a seperate site with a seperate IP and login to cpanel.
    I just want my existing folder protected.

    Isn't this possible?

    Do I do this or the host?

    The Cpanel server is new to the host, but I'm willing to work throught this.

    The host needs to.

    If the host does not know what they are doing, I very much so suggest you take your business elsewhere. Any number of problems can pop up on a hosting server. The ssl setup is an apache thing, not specific to cpanel, so it doesn't look like they know their stuff.

    I have to agree with Hoster2k. If they dont know how, then something is not going all to well.

    In WHM there is an option for the host to add certs. This will cause your entire domain.com to be able to use SSL with it.

    I must have been conveying the wrong message in my frustration.
    Seems this was a simple operation and is being taken care of.

    Thanks to everyone that replied.

    Any host referring it's customers here is a host to avoid, unless you are trying to do pretty complex stuff...

    Your host is supposed to support you, or if they can't, use the forum themselves to answer their questions.

    Most of the answers you'll find here require root access, which only your host has access to.

    As such, he they send you here, it is only because they don't want to bother wasting time doing the research themselves.
