This directory appeared in .well.known directory in root.

I looked into it and it appears to be related to ssl.

https://prnt.sc/kqzyx1

 

Can anyone tell me how does it get there If I didnt do it, Im concerened who else can create directories in my root.

 

Thanks

john

Do a google search for pki-validation, shows it is to do with your ssl certificate

Hello.

 

I think it creates cpanel (you have a cpanel hosting management)?

 

Best regards

Robert.

Yes, I seen it was SSL but wondered how it gets there, seems like Cpanel creates it to sort SSL out. YEs I do have cpanel

and I found this https://forums.cpane...ccounts.607075/

 

but then a warning like this

https://forums.cpane...rectory.621595/

If you do not use Perl I would switch to Plesk (much more stable & secured) instead of Cpanel.
