There are two important prerequisites to be met in order for a certificate to be able to issued:
The domain name(s) you want signed must be pointing to this cPanel server already
The Let’s Encrypt™ CA must be able to visit http://your-domain/.well-known/acme-challenge/xxx successfully.
These directories/files will be created automatically, but you should take care that you do not have any .htaccess rules that prevent access.
Most users will fulfil these requirements automatically.
First, click the + Issue button to the right of the domain you wish to issue a certificate for. Please note, any you will be able to select any extra domains to include on the certificate in the next screen.
Ensure that all of the domains you wish to include in this certificate are selected as included and click ‘Issue’. The process may take anywhere from 10 to 45 seconds, so do not navigate away from the page.
At completion, the keys and certificates should be installed on the server, with a success message:
Certificate renewal is automatic in the background.
Your certificate will be attempted to be renewed every day from the point it is 30 days from expiring.
The prerequisites listed above for issuing must still be met during the renewal attempts, or the attempts will fail.
You will receieve an email for any attempt to renew, be it successful or failed, to the email account attached to your cPanel account.
The certificate can be reinstalled at any time through the “Reinstall” action. Possible reasons for reinstalling can be enabling SSL for mail servers post-issuing, or if the certificate was removed from the SSL/TLS manager.
The status column will show the current status of the certificate on the system. If for any reason the certificate was removed from the SSL/TLS manager without being removed from the Let’s Encrypt™ plugin page, this status column will display “Uninstalled”.
To uninstall a certificate, it is best to press “Remove” on the Let’s Encrypt™ for cPanel plugin page, rather than doing through the SSL/TLS Manager that comes with cPanel.
This is because our uninstall process also removes the key and certificate from the manager, in one click.
Please note that uninstalling a certificate will not revoke it at the Let’s Encrypt™ CA.
You may wish to back up the private keys before you perform any uninstallations, as they are irretrevable, and you will require them if you want to use any of your previous certificates again.
All configuration and certificates are stored in ~/.cpanel/nvdata/letsencrypt-cpanel. We recommend you keep a backup copy of this file.
Tables are an important tool to sort and present data in an understandable format. Even though you can create tables by manually writing HTML and CSS inside your posts, it is not a feasible option for many specially if they lack the HTML and CSS knowledge. In this article, we will show you how to add tables in WordPress posts and pages. Best of all, you don’t need to know any HTML or CSS to add tables in WordPress using this tutorial.
First thing you need to do is install and activate TablePress plugin. Once activated, the plugin adds a TablePress menu item in your WordPress admin.
To create a new table click on Add New Table. This will take you to Add Newtab. After giving your table a name and description, choose the number of rows and columns you need. Don’t worry, you can always add/remove columns and rows from your table when entering data or by editing the table later.
Now you will reach Edit Table screen. This is the table editor where you can add data to your table. You can also add and remove columns or rows. All rows and columns can be dragged and rearranged. Once you have created the table, it is time to add this table into a post.
Open an existing post or create a new post to enter the table. If you are using the visual editor, then you will see the tables icon in your visual editor. Pressing the button will open a pop up showing your tables. Press Insert Shortcode button next to the table you want, and it will add a shortcode to your post.
If you do not use the visual editor, then you can simply insert the shortcode manually. Click on the TablePress menu item, and it will show you the list of tables you have created. Take your mouse over to the table you want to add. Click on Show Shortcode, and this will open a pop-up window with the table shortcode. Copy the shortcode and paste it in your post wherever you want to insert the table.
That’s it. It is this easy to create and add tables in your WordPress posts. You don’t have to write a single line of HTML or CSS. If you want to customize the look and feel of the table, then there is an option for that (you would need to customize the CSS for this part).
In this tutorial, we will learn how to Install WordPress from your cpanel Softaculous Menu
Softaculous is a popular auto-installer script. It allows you to easily install popular web applications like WordPress with just a few clicks. Hosting companies like Us use Softaculous in our control panel.
Simply login to your cPanel account and look for Softaculous icon or WordPress installer icon. You will find them under Auto Installers section.
Clicking on any of these icons will launch Softaculous auto-installer for WordPress. First you will see an overview of WordPress. You need to click on the Install tab to continue.
Softaculous will now ask you where you want to install WordPress. You need to choose http:// or http://www. as protocol.
If you have installed SSL and HTTPS, then you can select https:// or https://www. as protocol.
After that, you need to choose the domain name where you want to install WordPress. Most users want to install WordPress in their domain’s root directory, like example.com. In that case, you need to make sure that the ‘In Directory’ field is blank.
Scroll down a little, and you will see the site settings section.
Under this section, first you need to provide a title and description for your WordPress site. Don’t worry you can easily change them from your WordPress admin area after installation.
Next, you need to choose an admin username, password, and email address. Softaculous will automatically fill in the username and password fields for you. It will use a non-dictionary word for username and a strong password.
You can change them if you want so that they are easy to remember for you. However, we strongly urge you to always use a strong password.
Make sure that you enter correct email address in the admin email field. This is where WordPress will send notifications and password reset link if you ever forgot your password.
Rest of the options on the screen are optional. You can now click on the install button to run the installer.
Softaculous will run the installer using the settings you provided. You will see a progress bar with installation status. It will take a couple of minutes, do not close the window until the progress bar reaches 100% otherwise this may affect your WordPress installation.
You will see a success message after the installation is finished. It will also show you a link to your website and another link to your WordPress admin area.
Click on the link to see if your installation was successfully.
