Virtual Server (same IP) SSL different ports ?

I have previously set up SSL servers but only with virtual ip addresses.

I am trying the default of name-based virtuals and would love to be able to give ssl pages to each client while only consuming 1 ip address total for all of the multiple domains.

Your error statement suggests that is can be done by setting it on different ports.

"Failed to modify server : SSL cannot be enabled unless a virtual IP interface or private port is enabled"

Am I reading too much into this?

This would really be the bomb. I have scanned a few Apache manuals and the Webmin book by Jamie. I bought it! I really believe in supporting the ventures. "Webmin, Usermin and Virtualmin"

I have already purchased the advanced unlimited, and am waiting for an email from Joe Cooper to see if I purchased the wrong package. I don't mind giving you guys money because of your obvious talents and abilities. This way a great free product is updated (the free min's)and we can obtain support for the pro. win-win

Thanks in advance for your knowledge and support!

Imagine where we would be if math or science was not open...

Hey Burt,

The HTTP SSL protocol doesn't support multiple domains on the same IP (you can configure it in Apache, if you manually dig in and do so, but your users will get a security warning and some browsers will refuse to work with more than one of the domains--it looks like a man-in-the-middle attack or a certificate that cannot be validated to the browser--so Virtualmin protects you against making such a configuration mistake). As the error message states, you can either give it another IP, or you can give it another port.

There was a discussion about this in the forums not long ago here:
