    Go to the virtualhost for your secure domain in httpd.conf and add the line:

    Include "/path/to/your/includefile"

    Add your wildcard entry to your include file then restart Apache. Works for me.

    The best approach is to treat the wildcard subdomain as if it was a regular subdomain.

    Create a *.example.com subdomain on the account that owns example.com.
    Install the wildcard cert on the *.example.com subdomain.
