    Hello,

    we seem to run into a problem settup SSL certs through our WHM. We have 6 different domains that have SSL certs and we just moved from a server that utilized IP assigned domains and now are on a server that doesn't assigned each domain a unique IP address, except our primary DNS IP address. Which seems to work fine in the httpd.conf file for all our regular domain VirtualHost settings.

    But when setting up a SSL cert, it assigns the primary IP address for the VirtualHost: VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xxx.xx:443


    but then all the SSL domains point back to the first SSL domain listed in the httpd.conf file. All the preceeding SSL domains won't work, except the first SSL domain.

    How does one correct this problem when setting up the SSL cert domain in the httpd.conf file. ??

    Hope I am stating this clearly... if not please email me directly. Really could use some help on this one. Below is the status from Apache when start the apache web server:
    Code:
    [Sun Jul  6 05:36:22 2003] [warn] VirtualHost 64.246.58.87:443 overlaps with VirtualHost 64.246.58.87:443, the first has precedence, perhaps you need a NameVirtualHost directive

    Each SSL Certificate requires an IP address of it's own. You will need to get an additional IP address for each SSL Certificate you install on the server.

    Ok, if I am understanding you correctly, each of the SSL domains require it's own unique assigned IP in the VirtualHost directive and this IP should also match the VirtualHost IP for the regular domain... mean if we assign an IP of 123.321.203:443 for the www.somedomaina.com, then we must also assign the same IP, 123.321.203:80 for the www.somedomain.com so they both match. ??

    Is this correct ??

    Yes, the SSL Cert is assigned to the IP (and uses the associated domainName).
