Step 1
- Log in to WHM then find and click on the Feature Manager



Step 2 - Type in a name for the Feature List and click Add Feature List



Step 3 - The simplest thing to do is to tick the Select All Features For: option




You can tick/untick features depending on what you want to be available to the cPanel accounts. The important feature here is AutoSSL.




Once you're done, scroll down to the bottom and hit Save



Step 4 - Search for and click on the Edit a Package option in WHM



Step 5 - Select the Package you want that Feature List assigned to and click Edit



Step 6 - Select the newly created feature from the Feature List (it will be appended to start with your whm username) and hit Save Changes


Step 7 - The last step is to reapply the package. Find the Modify/Upgrade Multiple Accounts option in WHM




Now, select the Domains/cPanel accounts you want to apply Let's Encrypt for, chose the package (even if it's the same package they're currently on) and hit Change


The Packages will be refreshed and Let's Encrypt will be applied. Note that the script which checks for and applies Let's Encrypt certificates runs between midnight and 6 am every night so you may have to wait up to 24hrs for the certificate to be applied.
