    Please give this a try

    # WHM - SSL/TLS - Install a SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain

    # Put the .crt on the first box
    Domain = change the * to
    user = nobody
    IP Address =

    # Remove the key (if it auto fetches as this might come from a previous cert) and put your key associated with the wildcard ssl on the Key field

    # If you have a ca-bundle, please do the same as mentioned above for the last box

    # Click on Submit at the top

    #WHM - SSL/TLS - Manage SSL Hosts
    Select your ssl from the drop down box and click on Share

    This should get you going
