    I have my own server and have installed ssl on the main servers hostname ie: bunghole.domain.com and ssl works fine when i https:// etc into it but then i had a customer want their own ssl for their webmail so i bought that and installed it but it wont work for ports. ie... when i do https://mynewcustomer:2096 i get mismatch as it uses my main domains ssl. how do i do a shared enviro like that?

    For a client to use their own SSL, you will need to set up a dedicated IP. Once they are using the dedicated IP, you can install their SSL certificate.

    see, thats what i thought too.this client has their own dedicated ip address. thats whats got me wondering. its like as soon as i use a port number it defaults back to the servers ip as if i just do https://domain.com it works but as soon as i add the port number for webmail or any other port number thats valid it mismatch errors as the main servers ssl

    Port 2096 is not handled by Apache, but by cPanel. Hence, the certificate used is what is set in the Manage Service SSL Certificates section in WHM.
