Yes my hosting provides me with cPanel, however, they only want to sell me their SSL certificate for like $150 a year when, letsencrypt.org would allow me to do the testing that I need, for an affordable $0 lease for 90 days. I just self-signed my local server (localhost) and did all of my testing there. (Amazon is a pain!)
Thank you all for the assistance but I even tried using .htaccess to install the server.key and intermediate.pem, but still to no avail. I don’t have httpd.conf access – so to get them to add the certificate for me would be a “one time fee” of $10, however, I didn’t have the $20 at the moment. So I resorted to self-signing!
Again, thank you everybody for the input – eHost is a web hosting company which should be avoided.
