3. Engintron is using the official repositories for Nginx, all Engintron software is updated whenever cPanel is updated. If something has changed on Engintron and you need to re-install it, you can install it on top of the previous installation. You don't need to uninstall it first like other Nginx installer plugins for cPanel. It works from CentOS 5 up to CentOS 7. Engintron has an app dashboard inside WHM. 

4. The interface has basic controls for Nginx, Apache, MySQL. These controls allow you to edit various configuration files. Inside the Engintron app dashboard you’ll also find some utilities to monitor things like Nginx access & error logs, check processes on your server or see incoming traffic on port 80. It doesn’t require Nginx or Apache host synchronization when adding new domains via cPanel.

Easy way to convert cPanel SSL Certificate from PEM format to PFX

pem is a de-facto file format called Privacy-Enhanced Mail. These are interchangeable file extensions for the PKCS#12 format. 

Technically, PKCS#12 is the successor to Microsoft's PFX format, but they have become interchangeable. PKCS#12 files are archives for cryptographic material.

PKCS#12 (also known as PKCS12 or PFX) is a binary format for storing a certificate chain and private key in a single, encryptable file.

All SSL Certificates require a private key to work. The private key is a separate file that's used in the encryption/decryption of data sent between your server and the connecting clients.

A private key is created by you—the certificate owner—when you request your certificate with a Certificate Signing Request (CSR).

Basically, the default SSL file format used by apache web server is the PEM format. Whereas PFX files are used on MacOS and Windows systems to do export and import activities of private keys and certificates.
