I am still having issues trying to get multiple valid SSL certificates to work for multiple website domains on the same Apache-Ubuntu server. Client browsers need to successfully validate SSL certificates for Internet Explorer in WinXP, Vista and Win 7, FF on all operating systems, and Safari on Mac OSX.
I tried to ask this question a couple of times previously, but because I didn't articulate my problem well, I got good answers that didn't help me achieve my end goal.
But the problem is that it doesn't work for some of the older browsers like Internet Explorer 7 on Windows XP (works fine in IE7 on Windows Vista).
So then I tried something I think is called IP aliasing. I purchased a new IP address 18.104.22.168. Now I have two: 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199. I issued the following shell commands to add 188.8.131.52 to my server:
john@server> ifconfig eth0:1 184.108.40.206 netmask 255.255.255.0 john@server> route add -host 220.127.116.11 dev eth0:1
And I made sure the following two lines existed in my /etc/hosts file
18.104.22.168 john1 22.214.171.124 john2
I then set up my vhost files exactly as shown in q1. I restarted Apache but all my websites came through on the 126.96.36.199 IP instead of the 188.8.131.52 IP. As a result IE7 on Win XP threw a "certificate can't be trusted" error. When I changed any of the <VirtualHost *:443> to <VirtualHost 184.108.40.206:443>, ALL client browsers complained that the website's "certificate can't be trusted" (probably had something to do with the site using 220.127.116.11 IP address instead of 18.104.22.168 IP address).
So I'm back to my original problem. Where can I find a working step-by-step guide on how to set up multiple SSL on the same apache-ubuntu server? Can anyone help me troubleshoot this problem?
