Installing an ssl certificate on your server, using Cpanel

    AM SORRY THIS TUTORIAL WILL HAVE TO BE RELEASED WITHOUT GUIDLINE IMAGE DUE TO THE BROWSER I USED WHILE MAKING THIS POST. BUT I PROMISE TO MAKE AN UPDATE OF IT SO SOON.

    NOW LET'S START WITH THE BASIC THINGS WE NEEDED TO KNOW ABOUT INSTALLING AN SSL CERTIFICATE WITH THE HELP OF CPANEL.


    LEGACY THEME

    After the certificate has been activated and issued to you by
    the Certificate Authority, you can proceed with deploying the
    certificate in your cPanel. Follow the steps below:

    1. Log into your cPanel account

    2. Locate and click on SSL/TLS Manager in the Security
    section:

    3. Click on “Manage SSL Sites” under the Install and
    Manage SSL for your website (HTTPS) menu:

    4. Copy the certificate code you received from the
    Certificate Authority including -----BEGIN
    CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE----- and
    paste it into the “Certificate: (CRT)” field on the
    next page. The certificate files can be opened with
    the help of a text editor (e.g., Notepad for Windows
    or Textedit for macOS) on your computer.
    Note: The certificate code can be found in the
    *yourdomain*.crt file which is usually sent to you in
    the email from the Certificate Authority.
    Alternatively, it can be downloaded from your
    account directly.

    5. Click on the Autofill by Certificate button, which
    appears next to the certificate entered, and the
    system will attempt to fetch the domain name and
    the private key. You may also choose the domain
    from the drop-down list and manually enter the
    certificate and private key into the corresponding
    boxes. If the system fails to fetch the private key, you
    can locate it in the Private Keys (KEY) section of the
    SSL/TLS Manager. Please remember to include
    Begin/End headers and footers for the certificate and
    the key. In case the private one is missing, please
    generate a new CSR code together with the private
    key and then reissue your SSL certificate.

    6. Copy and paste the chain of intermediate certificates
    (CA Bundle) into the box under Certificate
    Authority Bundle (CABUNDLE) if it is not filled in
    already.

    If you want to use this certificate for Mail Services
    (Exim and Dovecot), check the “Enable SNI for Mail
    Services” box. In this case, you will be able to use
    your domain on which the SSL certificate has been
    installed as a hostname of the mail server
    configuring your mail clients to work via secured
    ports.

    7. Click on the “Install Certificate” button
    Congratulations! The certificate is now installed on
    the server for your site. The site should now be
    accessible via You must be registered to see links. You can check the installation
    using this tool

    NOTE! Starting from cPanel version 11.60 you are able to use
    the installed certificates to log into the cPanel/WHM as well as
    webmail, ftp and webdisk. The certificate installed for a
    domain gets assigned to these services.
