Installing SSL Cert for cPanel/WHM Itself

Fix SSL Cert Error WHM 2087

I’ve spent days finding this solution so here is the result – thanks to this thread!!

How to Setup WHM and CPANL so clients will be redirected to a valid SSL Certificate when logging in.

Instructions based on WHM v11.15.0

1) Purchase / Install the Certificate for your fully qualified domain (ie: server.domain.com)

SSL / TLS >> Install a SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain

2) Test your new CERT

https://server.domain.com/
should resolve and the cert should function properly before moving forward.

https://server.domain.com:2087/
should be giving you an invalid certificate error

3) Install the CERT for the WHM and CPANEL Service (this is the step you don’t think about!!)

Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates
> Select “Install New Certificate” for the “cPanel/WHM/Webmail Service”
> Select Domain this CRT is for “Browse”
> Pick the full server cert you installed “server.domain.com”
> Press “Submit” to install

4) Test your Service Certificate

https://server.domain.com:2087/
should now be working !! WHOOOO

** Once your done, you may choose to install the same cert for your SMTP, POP, and FTP accounts so that the option is available and functioning properly

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkallsslcerts
