I have an apache 2.4 webserver running on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Is it possible to enable SSL only for a single VirtualHost and leaving the other VirtualHosts unaffected (including the default one)?
For example, in my web server I have this sites running over HTTP:
000-default.conf hello.com.conf welcome.com.conf secure.com.conf
I don't have
Now I want to run
secure.com.conf under HTTPS (:443) so I enabled the ssl plugin with
a2enmod ssl and changed the VHost configuration in this way:
<VirtualHost *:443> ServerName www.secure.com ... SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/www.secure.com/fullchain.pem SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/www.secure.com/privkey.pem </VirtualHost>
Anyway, when I restart apache with
service apache2 restart it fails and says:
[ssl:emerg] AH02240: Server should be SSL-aware but has no certificate configured [Hint: SSLCertificateFile] ((null):0) [ssl:emerg] AH02312: Fatal error initialising mod_ssl, exiting.
SSLCertificateChainFile to the configuration I managed to start the webserver...
Anyway, if I try to load (just for testing)
https://hello.com, apache now wants to serve it and all the other VirtualHosts with the
secure.com certificate and of course the browser gives the error:
