    Installing a SSL certificate on your server, using cPanel 11.48

    After generating the Certificate signing in Request, and you have received it from the Certificate authority, proceed to deploy the certificate on the server. Here are the steps to follow to install the SSL for your site.

    Step 1: Go to your cPanel account and log in.

    Step 2: Go to security section and select SSL/TLS manager.

    Step 3: On the Install and Manage SSL for your site (HTTPS), select ‘Manage SSL Sites’

    Step 4: The certificate code received from the Certificate Authority, copy and paste it into the ‘Certificate (CRT)’ field on the next page.

    PS: Include -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE-----

    Step 5: Click on Autofill by Certificate button and the system attempts to retrieve the domain name and the private key. The button appears adjacent to the certificate entered.

    Should the system fail to retrieve the private key, it can be found in private keys in the SSL/TLS Manager.

    Note: Please include the Begin/End headers and Footers for the certificate and the key

    Step 6: copy the CA Bundle (chain of intermediate certificates) in the box under CABUNDLE (Certificate Authority Bundle)

    Tick the ‘enable SNI for mail services’ if the use of this certificate is mail services (Dovecot and Exim). This allows you to use your domain – where the SSL has been installed, as the hostname of the mail server. Your mail clients will be configured to work via secured ports.

    Note: This option is available for cpanel 11.48 onwards. Older versions of cPanel cannot be used for certified mail.

    Step 7: Click the ‘Install Cerificate’ buttom and your certificate is now installed on your site’s server. Server will now be accessible via https://. Confirm the installation using this tool.
