    I installed SSL certificate for my site: mail.mydomain.com. mail.mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com point to the same site. I installed phpcoin on www.mydomain.com. when i open https://www.mydomain.com/phpcoin in IE, it show me a popup page which is said "the name on the sercurify certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site. " But if i open https://mail.mydomain.com/phpcoin, it is ok. So i think it is because the name on SSL certificate is mail.mydomain.com. Is there a way to fix the problem? Many thanks in advance!

    Unless you purchase a type of wildcard SSL cert, the SSL cert is specific to the fully qualified domain name (FQDN). You would need to purchase an additional certificate for www. and have it on another IP address. A common thing people do is purchase a certificate for a subdomain like secure.yourdomain.com and then use subfolders on this domain for certain secure applications.
