Subject Re: [users@httpd] mod_ssl question
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2007 19:19:32 GMT
Great!!  Now I have to figure out how to do it.  You wouldn't happen to have 
a link handy with some basic instructions on how to secure just a directory 
instead of an entire site?  I'm guessing that I would have to use some sort 
of SSL <Directory></Directory> container inside my <Virtual> container but

this is just a guess.

I'll check with godaddy and see what I can dig up for cheaper 
certificates...
