Subject RE: [users@httpd] Dual SAN certificate support
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2006 16:08:19 GMT

Event Type:     Error
Event Source:   Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID:       7024

The Apache2 service terminated with service-specific error 1.

When I edit ssl.conf to point to a single-SAN certificate for another
IP-based virtual web site, Apache starts up smartly with no errors.

mod_ssl doesn't care about what subjectAltName extensions might be in 
the certificate, though it might cause false warnings about subject CN 

What error is being printed when the server fails to start?  What does 
the error_log say?
