Want to adjust cipher suite - test on virtualhost first?

We have a VPS with about a dozen various corporate sites, however our server has been flagged as having weak keys. This prompted us to evaluate the entire cipher suite, and we would like to update it across the board.

But we'd like to test an updated combination before deploying it to the full live server.

I know WHM allows for global configuration adjustments, but for test purposes can I set up a unique cipher suite for a single virtual host within the VPS? We would like to ensure the new cipher suite would not wreck the other sites on the server before full deployment in a live environment.

Thank you.

Hello,

Apache documents information on this at:

SSL/TLS Strong Encryption: How-To - Apache HTTP Server Version 2.4

Additionally, the following third-party URL notes that a dedicated IP address must be assigned to the account:

Is it possible to set an SSLProtocol in Apache for a single VirtualHost (poodle)?

Here's a document that explains how to make custom changes to individual virtual hosts:

Modify Apache Virtual Hosts with Include Files - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

Let us know if this helps.

Thanks!
