cPanel & WHM’s AutoSSL
« on: May 12, 2018, 09:48:30 am »
What is AutoSSL?

AutoSSL is the solution to one of the biggest pain points that exists for every cPanel & WHM user: SSL installation and renewal. With AutoSSL that pain goes away. There are no more forms to fill out, and no more certificates to manually copy into place. Once you enable AutoSSL, your websites are automatically secured with a free, Domain Validated SSL certificate. Perhaps more exciting is the fact that your coverage will never lapse, because at expiration time a new, free SSL is requested and automatically installed.

How do you enable AutoSSL?

Enabling is easy! In WHM navigate to the AutoSSL interface, and adjust the selected toggle to cPanel. Then click save.

The server will automatically do the following:

Quote
    Add a feature to WHM >> Packages >> Feature Manager named “AutoSSL”
    Add a cronjob ( /etc/cron.d/cpanel_autossl ) to handle the downloading and installation of new SSL certificates for all of your hosted domains.

Troubleshooting AutoSSL

If you have any problem with the application, you can view the logs for AutoSSL right from the WHM interface. After the first run of the cronjob you’ll see the logs listed in the ‘Logs’ tab. You can load the log by selecting the log file you’d like to view and clicking ‘View Log’.
