Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Let's say I want to have my blog display at blog.example.com, but I own a SSL/TLS cert for example.com only.

I want to have authenticated users transparently redirected from blog.example.com to example.com/internal/blog (which uses TLS) so that their connections can be encrypted. The latter URL should be the admin interface for the blog.

Is this feasible?

I'm using Apache2 on RHEL 5.4.

That seems to deal primarilly with a secure and a non-secure host on the same URL. Would I need to make many changes to the instructions to adapt them to different hostnames? Also, do you have any thoughts on the plugin it mentions: kerrins.co.uk/blog/admin-ssl –  lfaraone Dec 7 '09 at 15:23
