installing SSL on CWP from cPanel
« on: April 18, 2016, 08:48:47 PM »
Hi all!

I still fairly new to the use of CWP but i am very impressed so far with it's features and functions...!

The only issue i have had so far from my previous provider with WHM/cPanel installed is adding SSL to my website since most of it's links are in HTTPS so it isn't working very well without it.

My previous provider gave me a text file containing: RSA Private KEY | Certificate & Bundle... how do i implement this into CWP for my website: nexusupdate.com to work correctly?

Thank-you kindly for all your help.
(yes i have tried going into some of the instructions in the forums and website but couldnt figure it out...)

If u didn't reissued ur ssl certs for the new ip then the certs will not work. You need to reissue the certs for the new ip, contact the ssl provider

I tried this... but i get errors.

Code: [Select]
Stopping httpd: [  OK  ]
Starting httpd: [Mon Apr 18 19:37:33 2016] [error] (EAI 2)Name or service not known: Could not resolve host name 162.243.214.199:443/~securico/nexusupdate -- ignoring!
httpd: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName
[FAILED]

Then i tried adding the ip to host file.... and changed hostname to core.riantmedia.com
/etc/hosts
Code: [Select]
162.243.214.199   localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1         localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
162.243.214.199 core.riantmedia.com
162.243.214.199 autoreply.riantmedia.com
/etc/hostname
Code: [Select]
core.riantmedia.com
Then restarted apache and got this error:
Code: [Select]
Stopping httpd: [FAILED]
Starting httpd: [Mon Apr 18 19:44:34 2016] [error] (EAI 2)Name or service not known: Could not resolve host name 162.243.214.199:443/~securico/nexusupdate -- ignoring!

Did you install nginx or varnish as a reverse proxy ?

Did you added Listen 443 to vhost ?
