 AutoSSL is usually enabled by default. If you would like to check whether it is enabled, go to the Manage AutoSSL page as shown above, and make sure one of the available providers is chosen, and **not** the "//​Disabled//"​ option. If you have made any changes, be sure to click the "​Save"​ button: AutoSSL is usually enabled by default.

 By default, only the "​cPanel (powered by Comodo)"​ provider is enabled. If you prefer to use Let's Encrypt, a [[https://​documentation.cpanel.net/​display/​CKB/​The+Let%27s+Encrypt+Plugin|plugin]] can be installed to give you this option. Other Certificate Authorities (CAs) might also have plugins available to integrate their services into WHM's AutoSSL. By default, only the "​cPanel (powered by Comodo)"​ provider is enabled.

 By default, AutoSSL will already check the certificates of all accounts automatically once per day. If you prefer not to wait until the next automatic check, you can run a new check at any time from the "​Manage AutoSSL"​ page of WHM. First, find the "​Manage AutoSSL"​ page as shown above. Then you can either click the "Run AutoSSL For All Users" button to recheck all users, or go to the "​Manage Users" tab, look for and choose the specific account you want to check, and click the "​Check"​ button in the "Run AutoSSL Check" column of that account'​s row. By default, AutoSSL will already check the certificates of all accounts automatically once per day.

 This will show you, among other things, whether the account has any domains or subdomains not covered by certificates,​ whether AutoSSL can attempt to generate a certificate,​ and the reason if it cannot. This will show you, among other things, whether the account has any domains or subdomains not covered by certificates,​ whether AutoSSL can attempt to generate a certificate,​ and the reason if it cannot.

 The top checkbox says "Allow AutoSSL to replace invalid or expiring non-AutoSSL certificates."​ It is important to note this option defaults to **not** checked. So if you have a domain that already has a certificate,​ and you want to let its current certificate expire and get a new one with AutoSSL, you will need to either check this box or remove the old certificate before AutoSSL will generate the new one for you. The top checkbox says "Allow AutoSSL to replace invalid or expiring non-AutoSSL certificates."​ It is important to note this option defaults to **not** checked.

 The reason that the box is not checked by default is to help prevent accidentally replacing a higher-validation-level certificate with the Domain Validated (DV) certificate generated by AutoSSL. In some cases, it might even be preferable to allow an OV (Organization Validated) or EV (Extendedly Validated) certificate to expire rather to have it replaced by one that is merely domain validated. The reason that the box is not checked by default is to help prevent accidentally replacing a higher-validation-level certificate with the Domain Validated (DV) certificate generated by AutoSSL.
