SSL won't generate for a subdomain.

Just installed Phpbb forum at forum.pafitpro.com, but it's not coming up as secure. When I check SSL in Cpanel, it shows that the certificate is self-signed. Please help...

If you are on a cPanel account you need to install your own SSL certificates - if you purchased a certificate, unless it is a wildcard SSL it doesn't typically cover subdomains. 

 

I recommend using https://www.sslforfree.com/ however you do need to get a new certificate every 90 days.
