    Hello,

    I am trying to install a SSL Certificate to one of my clients web sites. I click on the Install CRT as root. I check my httpd.conf file and it is added as a VirtualHost. I then restart apache and it works.

    At least for my SSL Certificate. When ever I goto to https://secure.bluer.org/, it shows me my secure web page https://secure.limitedwebgroup.com/.

    I have redirected the DocumentRoot /home/jlimited/public_html/secure to /home/bluer/public_html/secure.

    Where can I find information on this or does someone now how to fix this?

    Thanks
    Jlimited

    Do you have a dedicated IP address for each SSL site?

    You have to. Each SSL cert requires it's own dedicated IP.

    I now have a dedicated IP for both my sites.

    I logged in as Root and then add the IP on the Add IP Address Link. I guess I need to click on the Change Site's IP Address link and then change my client's site over to it.

    What I need to know now, is there a way to allow the old IP to redirect the mail and serve the web page while the DNS is updating?

    Thanks

    The ip should have been updated in your nameservers immediately - if indeed you did change it - (if you use cpanel/cpanel dns clustering to handle your nameservers), and all other servers should ask your nameservers for the correct Ip... it's only nameserver NAMES that can take a while to propagate.
