How To Install AutoSSL for Server Hostname – cPanel Server

In this blog, we will learn how to install AutoSSL for Server Hostname – cPanel server. As you know that from starting cPanel is offering free SSL, issued by ‘cPanel INC’ for free of charge to the valid cPanel License owner.

You will have to check for the option “Check Allow AutoSSL” to replace invalid or expiring non-AutoSSL certificates if you are using cPanel. For accessing this option, login to WHM then click on ‘Providers’ then click “Enable cPanel and from Options select “Check Allow AutoSSL”

Now run UPCP which should automatically install the free SSL for your cPanel server hostname. If it is not possible then it must be due to your server IP and hostname IP are resolving to the wrong address.

You should run the following Script for understanding and troubleshooting this problem

# /usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkallsslcerts

This script helps in checking and installing certificates that are expired, invalid or self-signed certificates for various services on the server.
