Cpanel Wildcard SSL Installation Script

Wildcard SSL Installation Script

Keep in mind that for a wildcard SSL to work, it really does have to be installed for each subdomain. You can’t install it once and have it automatically work in the fly like wildcard DNS does – Apache just doesn’t work that way. Luckily, we’ve scripted an easy solution for you.

Create the following files:

A) /etc/ssl/certs/tld.crt

This file will contain the actual certificate, and should be named off of your top-level domain.

For example, if the certificate is for *.mydomain.com, name the file mydomain.com.crt

B) /etc/ssl/certs/tld.cabundle

This file will be the CA bundle for your wildcard certificate, if you have one. If the certificate is for *.mydomain.com, name the file mydomain.com.cabundle

C) Now download the install script.

Then,

D) Running it will install the certificate on all subdomains of the domain passed to the script:

chmod 755 wildcardssl.sh

./wildcardssl.sh $domain
