Description

This function uploads an SSL certificate. When you call this function, the system copies the certificate data to the account's ~/ssl/certs directory.

Warning:

We strongly recommend that you use the following UAPI function instead of this function:

Note:

Due to the limited field length of HTTP GET method calls, you must use the HTTP POST method. For this reason, you cannot use the WHM API to call this function.

Examples

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


Warnings:

  • In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs. Examples are only present in order to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI.
  • cPanel API 2 calls that use cPanel tags vary in code syntax and in their output.
  • For more information, read our Deprecated cPanel Tag Usage documentation.
