Sorry for the problem with generating the private key. When I stepped through it using the steps in the private key. I created a key in your cPanel and then downloaded both the key I created and the key that I assume you created. Try it again and let us know if you have any further problems. Describe the steps you take so that we can try to duplicate the issue if it happens again.

Hello apples723,

I see what you mean with the converting. Unfortunately, that is something that has broken within the cPanel and they are working to fix it in an upcoming release. Currently, we do have some information that can help you and convert the key for you. You can find that information here.

Kindest Regards,
