Subject [users@httpd] mod-ssl with or without client certificate
Date Thu, 22 Dec 2005 17:02:40 GMT
Server version: Apache/2.0.54

Hi all.

In our virtual hosts we have got a squirrelmail conf through https (without 
client side certificate). It works.

NameVirtualHost *:443

<VirtualHost *:443>
         SSLEngine on
         DocumentRoot /usr/share/squirrelmail
<Directory /usr/share/squirrelmail>
         php_flag register_globals off
         Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
<IfModule mod_dir.c>
         DirectoryIndex index.php
<Files configtest.php>
         order deny,allow
         deny from all
         allow from

I'd like to add another Virtual Host in order to manage client side 

<VirtualHost *:443>
         LogLevel debug
         SSLEngine on
         SSLVerifyClient require
         SSLVerifyDepth 3
         SSLCACertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/caCerts.pem
         DocumentRoot /var/www/

Now, if I put this section before the squirrelmail, it asks me for the 
certificate even though I point to the squirrelmail, while if the latter is 
the second section, I can access everything without any certificate. It 
sounds like if does not discriminate between client cert and no client 
certificate, it only understand the method invoked in the first virtual host.
Do you have any ideas ?

Ciao and thank you.
Merry Chistmas.
Yours Ezio.
