How to use WHM to install an SSL certificate

This guide will explain to you how to install an SSL certificate in WHM. After you get your certificate via email, you can install your certificate on WHM.

Let us find the steps:

  1. Log in to WHM.

  2. Find the “SSL/TLS” category from the left-hand side of the screen.
  3. Click on the “Install an SSL certificate on a Domain” option.

  4. You will enter a new page where you will have to fill in the information.

  5. Enter the domain name on which the SSL certificate is to be installed.

  6. In the “Certificate” field, enter the certificate that was sent to you through the mail. Make a note, certificates that are sent in a zip format, are to be unzipped first. Open this file with the help of any text editor and copy the content in it and then paste it into this field.

  7. Under the “Private key” option, manually enter the private key that was created with the CSR you used for the certificate activation. This particular text is the decoded one, hence it is owned by you itself. This process can be auto-filled if the CSR is created using the same WHM account.

  8. In the “Certificate Authority Bundle” section, enter the CA certificates that are generally sent with the certificate.

  9. CA certificates from Comodo (Sectigo CA) are sent as .zip files. If you have a file with the extension *.ca-bundle in your zip, paste its content into Certificate Authority Bundle box. They can be sent in different formats. Different types of SSL certificates require different CA certificates. Certificate Authority Bundle should contain all CA certificates in the correct order.
  10. Finally click on the “Install” button.

  11. You will receive a success message once the Certificate is installed.
