    Hi there,
    Im rather new to all of this so I apologize in advance that this may be a silly question, however:

    I have a dedicated server running 1/2 a dozen or so domains on separate IP addresses. The primary server domain (domain1.com) has an SSL cert. Each of the other domains have their own SSL certs.

    Whenever a user needs to use SSL they are given a "host name mismatch warning." So for example if checking a mailbox on (domain4.com) they are presented with an SSL warning page. If you look at the details on this it is referencing the SSL cert for (domain1.com) and NOT (domain4.com). Obviously because these are different names you get an error.
    No matter what protocol is used it always seems to give the same error, IE FTP over SSL, HTTPS, SMTPS, IMAPS etc all give the same error on all of the domains.

    I am pretty sure the crts are all installed correctly as you can see them all in Cpanel and WHM, however I am a bit at a loss as to why it is trying to use the SSL cert for (domain1.com) when I am checking email on (domain2-7.com)

    I have (domain1.com)s certificates installed for Service SSL under WHM as I can only install one certificate for each service.


    Any input on this problem would be greatly appreciated...

    thanks

    Because it is configured so in WHM-> Service Configuration -> Manage Service SSL Certificates

    then Considering you can only have one CRT installed per service on that page, what is the best practices method of securing each domain with its own SSL crt? Do I have to install a separate instance of each service for each user account?

    As far as I know it's not possible.
