When installing SSL via cPanel, "...already has a website on the IP address *..." error message

I submitted a CSR, got the certificate, uploaded it to the server, ect. However when I attempt to install it, this message shows up:


[URL] already has a website on the IP address “*”, but you requested to add an SSL website for that domain onto the IP address “[IP HERE]”. A single domain may not have websites on more than one IP address.


I am in CPanel -> SSL/TLS -> Manage SSL Sites. I click "Browse Certificates", and select my certificate, and all fields auto-populate. Clicking "Install Certificate" at the bottom creates this error message. 


I have tried a new browser (to clear browser cache). I tried re-keying the CSR and re-creating the SSL and re-uploading it. I called GoDaddy support twice, with nothing helpful. I removed and uninstalled the old SSL. I am out of ideas and this is a live e-commerce site, so every second counts.


Thanks in advance for any help!

It looks like you were able to get this issue resolved with some help on the cPanel forums here: 


I'm posting a link to the thread on those forums to help future users who may encounter the same error.  Thanks!
