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 188.8.131.52. Now I have two: 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11. I issued the following shell commands to add 18.104.22.168 to my server:
john@server> ifconfig eth0:1 22.214.171.124 netmask 255.255.255.0 john@server> route add -host 126.96.36.199 dev eth0:1
And I made sure the following two lines existed in my /etc/hosts file
188.8.131.52 john1 184.108.40.206 john2
I then set up my vhost files exactly as shown in q1. I restarted Apache but all my websites came through on the 220.127.116.11 IP instead of the 18.104.22.168 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 22.214.171.124:443>, ALL client browsers complained that the website's "certificate can't be trusted" (probably had something to do with the site using 126.96.36.199 IP address instead of 188.8.131.52 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?
