Apache2 VirtualHost and SSL

Hello, I have a question regarding apache2 and ssl. Suppose you have two virtual hosts on one ip address. Say, in,


SSLCertificate key1.pem

SSLCertificate key2.pem

I am trying to give each site its own SSL certificates but it doesnt seem to work. key1 seems to take precedence. Can anyone explain and suggest an alternative?

Thank you

Or for the really short version: ssl negotiation happens before virtualhost resolution, so you can only have one SSL cert per ip address or port. Either bind one of them to a nonstandard port or bind them both to distinct ip's on the standard port.
