- 2. Issue the following commands, replacing the username and domain as appropriate for your situation. The username and domain portion are in all capital letters in this example to highlight what needs to be changed. Please use all lowercase letters when running the command on your server.
mkdir -p /etc/apache2/conf.d/userdata/ssl/2_4/CPANELUSERNAME/DOMAIN.TLD/
