CentOS Control Panels

Hello there, quick question from newbie as after first attempt, I got not secure log in warning, my “https” was not working.

So I want to install c-Panel on CentOS and want to know the order to do it.

What I did previously was this:

  • Added CloudFlare NS inside Domain Provider
  • Created the droplet inside DO
  • Added the domain to the droplet
  • Start installing c-Panel

aaaand got in that black window some warnings about kernel and when went to log in using https://mydroppletip:2078 got warning that SSL sertificate is not working.

Anyone help and let me know the proper flow of installing and connecting things as providing tutorial sources?

Hello friend!

At this time cPanel issues free SSL certificates for WHM/cPanel, but you need to use the server hostname rather than the IP in browser, as SSL certificates are signed only for names and not IP addresses. I highly recommend their installation guide, as the cPanel team has heavily documented it:

Kind Regards,
