VPS & Dedicated Hosting: Resetting SSL's for Server Services

Resetting the Certificates for your Server's Services

Shortly before the SSL Certificates for the server's services expire, WHM will notify you via email that they will be expiring soon. To begin, you will need to be logged into WHM.

It is important to review your server from time to time to ensure its services, for example, making sure EXIM has an SSL certificate installed properly. These certificates are important to authenticate when you sign in to your secured ports. Here are the following examples:

  • Your-server name-ip:2087 - resolves to a secured WHM login page.
  • Your-server name-ip:2096 - resolves to a secured email sign-in page.
  • Your-server name-ip:2084 - resolves to a secured cPanel page.

Manage Service SSL Certificates

  1. In the search field on the upper left-hand side of the page, enter Service Configuration.
  2. Choose the Manage Service SSL Certificates tool from the list.
    You can view and reset your certificates through this menu. Once you reprovision a new certificate, they will often be 'self-signed' certificates.

Note: It is not ideal as self-signed certificates lead to security warnings when visiting pages.

In this case, it is recommended to provide a new certificate for your site to use one of the cPanel's automated scripts.

Run cPanel's Automated Scripts in Terminal

  1. In the search field located on the upper left-hand side of the page, enter Terminal.
  2. Select the Terminal tool.
  3. Please enter this command script in the terminal: /scripts/upcp

Your server should automatically update and reprovision any misaligned certificates on your services. So asides from updating your cPanel, it will also check for all service level certificates and replace them as necessary.
