SSL server cannot have its own DocumentRoot


Hi! I have the following setup (please note there are two IPs):

NameVirtualHost IP1:80

<VirtualHost IP1:80>
ServerName main_server:80
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost IP1:80>
ServerName 2nd_server:80
DocumentRoot "/var/www/2nd_server"
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost IP2:80>
ServerName 3rd_server:80
DocumentRoot "/var/www/3rd_server"
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost IP1:443>
ServerName main_server:443
DocumentRoot "/var/www/secure_html"
SSLEngine on
...
</VirtualHost>

I can go to main_server, 2nd_server and 3rd_server and go to the respective DocumentRoot. However, when I go to https://main_server,
I am directed to the DocumentRoot of main_server (/var/www/html) with https. Does any one have any suggestion? Is it because ServerName of the SSL server is also called main_server? (I would prefer that http://main_server goes to /var/www/html and https://main_server goes to /var/www/secure_html) Thank you.

Perhaps this is your problem

Quote:
Name-based virtual hosting cannot be used with SSL secure servers because of the nature of the SSL protocol.
Refer to: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/name-based.html

Thank you for your suggestion, I read the apache doc already and I understand that I cannot have more than one SSL server on the same "socket" (IP + port). Please note that in my configuration, I have name-based virtual hosts on IP1:80 but the SSL server on IP1:443.

I also tried to name the SSL server another name but the result is the same.

Thanks

I had a look at my config, and my entries are:

ServerName main_server

not

ServerName main_server:443

I suspect you also need an entry

NameVirtualHost *:443

or similar before

<VirtualHost IP1:443>

Hope that helps - I don't claim to be an expert on apache, but mine does work.

Cheers


Bill

Thanks God and thanks billymayday, it works now. The httpd.conf now looks like:

NameVirtualHost IP1:80
NameVirtualHost IP1:443

<VirtualHost IP1:80>
ServerName main_server:80
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost IP1:80>
ServerName 2nd_server:80
DocumentRoot "/var/www/2nd_server"
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost IP2:80>
ServerName 3rd_server:80
DocumentRoot "/var/www/3rd_server"
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost IP1:443>
ServerName main_server
DocumentRoot "/var/www/secure_html"
SSLEngine on
...
</VirtualHost>

Now every virtual host has its own document root.
