How do I install UCC SSL certificate on Cpanel servers

I have purchased a UCC ssl certificate from Godaddy which is support to used for 5 domains. I can installed my primary domain ssl easily by reading Godaddy’s cpanel installation instructions. But I couldn’t see they anywhere for ssl implemention of other domain.

I have tried to install this ssl from the WHM–> ssl manager. But every time the primary ssl domain name certificate is re-installing. There is no any errors showing up during the installation and it’s still using self-signed certificate on browsing. After spending with 30 minutes I feel there is noting we can do with cpanel.

Then I directly checked the http.conf settings and copy my primary domain ssl settings to the other virtualhost which is included on the SAN list of that SSL certificate.

  SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/certs/
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl/private/
    SSLCACertificateFile /etc/ssl/certs/

Pls note that we can use the same certificate and private key for all the domains included on the UCC certificate. Then I restarted the Apache and found that it’s working correctly. I have verified it by viewing the certificate file also.

Now we need to fix the custom modification on httpd.conf saved on cpanel settings. for doing this,

<strong>root@server81-28-25-12 [~]# /usr/local/cpanel/bin/apache_conf_distiller --update   </strong>

  • Any luck with this I could use some help with the same install.

  • Hello,

    The basic Idea behind this is WHM/cpanel doesn’t identify whether it is UCC certificates even it’s treating as standard certificate which can be only issued to a domain name where UCC certificate hold through cpanel installation.

    You need to copy the SSL entries in Apache virtualhost which UCC SSL primary domain uses. first install ssl for the primary domain and use the same ssl entry for remaining domains in the UCC SSL also.

    It’s tweak
