    Good morning to all.

    A reseller has successfully installed a THAWTE cert on his main account. However, when going to https://hisdomain.com.au the server's global Comodo cert is in control, thus there is the usual browser warning that the name of the cert doesn't match the name of the site.

    We have re-installed the THAWTE cert a few times now in his reseller's WHM but can't quite work out why the server's Comodo cert is still over-riding the installed THAWTE one for his domain. In his Cpanel it shows the THAWTE cert as being installed on his domain.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers for now

    Maybe a silly question, but they are on seperate IPs arn't they?

    heh, yep... separate ips are the first thing to check. You MUST use one ip for each SSL cert... they will only work on the first one in httpd.conf if you have two as the same ip (which sounds possible that you do).

    Otherwise, if they are on separate ips... then check your httpd.conf and find the SSL part for the domain in question... check to make sure the .cert and .key files are pointing at the correct ones.

    Thank you dezignguy and bking,

    I mistakingly assumed reseller accounts had their own IP as default. I see some hosts do and some hosts don't provide this with their reseller accounts sold. Anyway, you both were right, the account didn't have its own IP. Now it does and all is smooth. I feel like a fool.

    Thank you
