SSL installation

view story

http://forums.cpanel.net – Hello I have a few questions regarding installation of SSL. The domain for the cpanel account I want to use ssl for is domain.com but I have rewrites to www.domain.com in my .htaccess file. From what I've read I should get a certificate for www.domain.com then, is this correct? Should I generate the signing request in WHM or cpanel? What is the difference? The first attempt of installing ssl was a certificate for domain.com, not www.domain.com and that resulted in a 500 error when trying to visit https://. Could this have been because of the wrong domain choice in the cert? A (HowTos)
