How to Enable your SSLv3 support in WHM

Introduction: SSLv3 is an old version of the security protocol and is considered insecure. SSL is known as the “Secure Sockets Layer” or “Transport Layer Security” (TLS). We would recommend making your software can use more recent security protocols, as sometimes you need to enable SSLv3 for your host

Note: Allowing SSLv3 is a security risk and we will advise against any activity that requires it to be enabled.

 Step 1: Navigate to WHM

Step 2: Click on the Service Configuration
