Valid for versions 82 through the latest version



Last modified: May 13, 2020


The /usr/local/cpanel/bin/autossl_check script allows you to manually check the SSL status for a single user, or for all users. The script can help you troubleshoot any AutoSSL issues via the command line. The script checks whether a user’s certificates have expired, and if there is SSL coverage for a user’s domains. The system uses this script when you select the Run AutoSSL for All Users setting in WHM’s Manage AutoSSL interface (WHM » Home » SSL/TLS » Manage AutoSSL).

The system calls this script daily via a cron job in the /etc/cron.d file.

To run this script on the command line, use the following format:
