hello i would walk you through what im trying to achieve , i have a vps from contabo , a domain name from namecheap , i did setup cloudflare among these .
i installed cbPanel , created a website same as my domain , and created a sub domain , and ofcourse i ticked the mail when creating website .
i had 2 problems first the issuing of ssl where the forum is full of such topics (i believe i read them all ) : i couldnt connect to my smtp via an external app . 2nd problem is the ssl that couldnt get assigned but instead i got the self assigned one
what i did was i manually went to cyberpanel on my website and clicked on add ssl and copy pasted each one its key and cert
then i found out when i access website its still insecure but instead my subdomain is secured
when i found out about this i went ahead to website and copy pasted same certificate key and cert to used for subdomain
please to note that normal issue certificate via CBpanel only got me self assigned ssl i uninstalled cyberpanel and did it all over still same issue
ps: cloudflare is pointing to my server , domain nameservers already changed properly .
please dont hesitate i would provide any more needed data .
thanks in advance
