I'm getting the following error out our httpd error_log.

How do I go about solving the conflict?

This warnings comes up because you are using multiple SSL certificates on one IP:


  • add another IP to the server.
  • enable TLS Extension Server Name Indication (SNI)

As quanta has said, you've got multiple virtual sites configured to use the same port (443) on the same IP address. You might benefit from reading the answers to Can I run two different secure sites using the port 443 on the same server? ; getting more IP addresses for your server is a common and excellent solution, but it's not the only one.
