    I have a customer who currently has an SSL protecting his primary domain, and another SSL protecting an addon domain. Both domains are actually mapped to the same physical path (public_html) and this works fine, but relies on the SNI extensions to SSL to work, so some of his customers are getting errors (when will people give up with XP!)

    For this scenario prior to 11.38 we used to put the addon domain on it's own IP address by editing the /var/cpanel/userdata/[user]/ file and altering the [subdomain].[primarydomain]_SSL file and changing the ip: field to reflect the second IP address.

    Then, we would rebuild httpd.conf and it would work fine. Will this technique still work under 11.40 without breaking anything?

    Hello :)

    Yes, it's still possible to assign a dedicated IP address to a subdomain or addon domain in cPanel version 11.40. You can find instructions on this at:

    Assigning Dedicated IPs to Subdomains

    Thank you.
