One of the customer hosted on shared server wants to install wildcard ssl for his account. Subdomain is setup pointing to a specific folder under his account. Dedicated IP address has been assigned to customers account. Installed the wilcard SSL for his main domain using the dedicated IP address but the subdomain doesnt work with SSL it points to his main domain. Can some on provide me with the exact steps to install the wildcard ssl for the subdomain pointing to a specific folder?

Hello SantoshS,

Please review the steps indicated in this forum post:

http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/ssl-certs-wildcard-domains-across-different-hosts-169030.html#post701022

While it mentions the shared IP, some of the steps are the same. You'd instead look at /var/cpanel/userdata/username/maindomain.com_SSL file and copy that to /var/cpanel/userdata/username/sub.maindomain.com_SSL location then revise the entries. Please note that username represents the cPanel username, maindomain.com represents the main domain on the account, and sub.maindomain.com represents the subdomain needing the wildcard SSL to function on it.

Thanks!
