Strange hostname-ssl file
« on: May 04, 2019, 11:09:29 AM »
Something strange happened, which caused chaos with my certs.

When I installed CWP I was asked for primary domain. 

In the past, it made no difference which domain I used.  In fact, I even used bogus.com in the past with no problem.

But now, it makes a very big difference. 

During install, I used my domain from my other server, (which I am being forced to abandon because CWP has expired files and will no longer update).  The NEW install, then created a hostname-ssl file.....BUT..BUT.....BUT...the NEW install created a hostname-ssl file and populated the IP address by a DNS LOOKUP. 

Guess what.....the NEW INSTALL created a hostname-ssl file with my OLD SERVER IP ADDRESS because DNS resolved to the old server IP address.   Bad Bad boy!  This  created big problems and big headaches.

If I look at primary domain name it showed the old server IP address.  I was able to edit the IP address, but I dont know how to edit primary domain associated with account.

I might need to re install everything.  I will wait for certs and domain dns changes to take effect.
