Error when trying to issue a new certificate

Hi all,

I am trying to install a new certificate for a website, but I keep receiving the following error:

There was a problem processing your request

I don’t know too much about this but I have been reading threads and googling the problem but none of the solutions have been able to help me.

I used the letsdebug tool which gave no issues and suggested I ask here for help.

My domain is:
http://superiorsportsmanagement.com/

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I don’t know

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
Yes, CPanel 84.0.19

Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance.

Hm, I’m not familiar with the control panel named “Yes”.

Sorry, missed it out, it’s cPanel

For that kind of cPanel issue, you may need to contact your host. Third parties may not be able to tell what’s wrong, or fix it. :sweat_drops:

Here’s an educated guess:

www.superiorsportsmanagement.com is not currently hosted on a cPanel server.

Instead, it’s hosted on an old Debian Jessie VPS with Media Temple, which obviously isn’t running cPanel.

For you to be able to issue a certificate from your cPanel server, your domain needs to be already pointing to the cPanel server.

Otherwise, it cannot perform the domain validation step of issuing a certificate.

You can do this by updating the DNS of your domain (in MediaTemple) to the details provided by your cPanel host.
