    Hi,
    I've been wanting to setup shared SSL on my servers for sometimes but have always refrained from doing it as bandwidth accessed the the /~username method isn't assigned to a users account.
    Is there a way of doing this now?
    Cheers,
    Tom

    I don't think so.

    I didn't think so - oh well, bandwidth is so cheap nowadays I guess it doesn't really matter but it's not ideal.

    There is definitely not a way to track bandwidth for users via the temporary username (mod_userdir) in the url.

    Since purchased SSLs are relatively cheap nowadays, you might consider simply trying to encourage users to obtain an SSL or obtain the SSL for them. Normally, you can get a low-level yearly SSL for around $20.

    That's what we have been doing - but my pet hate is administering SSL certificates - always a bit of a faff!
