Apache limitation?


It is true that Apache cannot run SSL with a virtual name server?
for example with 1 IP address you cannot run
http://www.domain.com
http://www.domain2.com
https://www.secure.com:443


I just find it hard to believe nobody has developed a solution to this problem.

I do...
Have you tried this and it failed, or simply read about it somewhere?

Cool

you have it working?

I read it here on linuxquestions ( I can post the link if you would like) and I have been unable to get it working. I can get more than one virtual name server or one SSL and only 1 unencrypted.

Did you say you have SSL and more than 1 virtual name server working? If you do, I would really like to pick your brain on how you did it.

I didn't have to do much... I simply set it up in /etc/apache2/conf/vhosts/vhost.conf and restarted Apache, and within that same conf I have 2 other domains setup, but only 1 of the 3 are using SSL.

Cool

I got it, thanks C.

I had the hosts in 2 different files.... finally I moved everything over to the ssl.conf file and it started working fine..

took a while to figure that out...

SSL doesn't work with name based hosting, but you can host multiple non-SSL domains using name based hosting and one SSL domain together with the same Apache server. The rule of thumb is that you need one IP address per SSL domain -- beyond that, it doesn't matter. I'd be curious to know why this is exactly -- is it a limitation/security feature in the SSL protocol?

Here is why: http://www.modssl.org/docs/2.8/ssl_faq.html#ToC47
Actually, the problem is that you cannot use more then 1 SSL certificate on 1 IP address. That means that although you could set up name-based virtual hosts on 1 IP address with https, they would all share 1 SSL certificate (it works, I've been there).
And unless you do some very clever tricks when generating the certificate, the web-browsers would complain that the host name written in the cert does not match the address typed in the browser.
