cpanel secure login alert Print

  • 39

Problem:

When I try to login to cpanel from My Services I get a security alert from firefox :

This Connection is Untrusted
You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to swh44.wesh.co.uk:2083, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Is this just being over-zealous or should I be worried?

Answer:

This is nothing to worry about, its simply because our servers provide whats called a "Self signed" SSL certificate, hence "this connection is untrusted" and its better to use the self signed, secure login than the normal unsecure login, although firefox will prompt you upon login due to the SSL certificate being self-certified.
