So I doubt I was the only one who got hit by this issue. Basically everything was fine in cPanel land until one day I was randomly getting logged out of cPanel (sometimes immediately after I’d logged in, other times after a few minutes). When I did manage to log in the cPanel interface appeared broken with missing images and occasionally missing stylesheets. In some cases I’d be blocked from even loading the login page. It wasn’t an isolated incident either as this problem cropped up on different hosting services.
Understandably frustrating when you rely on cPanel to configure your hosting.
Every so often something new is introduced designed to make things easier. But sometimes it also accidentally making things a bit harder. This is one of those times.
cPanel v58 introduced AutoSSL which automatically installs and renews SSL Certificates. All websites can use a Domain Validated SSL Certificate but AutoSSL can also be used to work with Let’s Encrypt. As a quick primer, SSL certificates allow a website to encrypt the communication between the web host and website visitors which is particularly important when you’re sending sensitive information like passwords and Credit Card details. Google also appears to be moving in the direction of recommending websites that use SSL. So if your webhost is using cPanel they can easily offer automated SSL Certificates to all their customers costing them practically nothing.
Great, right? Well, if you’re using a Content Distribution Network (CDN) or third-party Website Firewall, things may not be so great.
