cPanel, CommandLine Renewal of SSL

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

hststeels.com

It produced this output:

With cPanel, then certificates will be automatically created and renewed for you, via AutoSSL. You can also trigger a manual check using the WHM UI or the command line:

uapi --user=USERNAME SSL start_autossl_check

I’m not sure if it works if your cPanel licence is expired though, as in your case.

Thanks !
“/usr/local/cpanel/uapi” exited with status 1 (EPERM). at bin/apitool.pl line 260

Thats the error I seem to get.

Is that an Authentication Issue? -even as I logged in as root?

No, I’m believe it’s because your cPanel licence is expired.
