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.
My domain is: LicenseManager.us
I ran this command:
have run no commands
It produced this output:
no output yet
My web server is (include version):
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
yes, via cPanel File Manager
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): not using any Certbot yet. I don’t understand to get it going.
I'm not familiar with cPanel to be honest, but I doubt that "File Manager" will provide you with a root shell. To learn more about what is meant with a "root shell", see the following Wikipedia articles about the two mentioned items:
i don’t mind having to gen the cert manually. SSLForFree works quickly, and I can get a new cert in just a few minutes. cPanel allows me go gen the private and public keys i need, upload test files, retrieve and install certificates. the only thing i do not understand is how to communicate w/ LE directly. if i could get that done, i’d be on my way.
