    We are in the process of migrating from an old VPS (at another host) to a new VPS at Microsoft Azure. With Azure it would seem that we do not have the ability to add additional static IP addresses to our VPS so we would be forced to use shared SSL for those sites needing SSL.

    With that said we have a website that had a static IP address of its own on the old VPS so we are trying to migrate it to a shared SSL situation. The certificate and everything else seems to be working well but the problem seems to be that you have to have ~site after the primary/root URL. "site" is actually the name of the hosted account I just used "site" for generally speaking. So the problem we are having now is that /https://website.com/~site/ is not the true root directory for the site so it almost seems like we have to setup redirection but we would have to have redirection setup on every link in the site. That does not seem like the best answer. Can anyone shed some light on this or is this simply an issue with the site's code?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello :)

    Is the destination machine going to run CentOS 6, RHEL 6, or Cloud Linux 6? If so, SNI is supported and you will be able to install a SSL certificate on a shared IP address without the need to use the hostname in the URL.

    Thank you.

    Yeah the desintation is running CentOS and cPanel. They are identical other than the fact that I need to use SNI. However, when I setup SSL on that account it tells you that you that the url you use for https is https://<domain>/~<account> . With that said it is as if we cannot use HTTPS without putting that ~/<account>. That is the primary problem as far as I can tell right now.

    What version of cPanel and CentOS is installed? Also, what steps are you taking to install the SSL certificate?

    Thank you.
