Subject [users@httpd] Questions about implementing SSL/VirtualHosts
Date Fri, 11 Dec 2009 15:49:54 GMT
Background info: My company's server's Apache is currently configured 
without Virtual Hosts. Which means any request in the * 
( is a placeholder here) domain, that is not specifically 
setup on our public DNS, will be directed to our web server and any 
other DNS hack that points to our public IP, for that matter (i.e. 
adding it to the host file). I.e.,, all show the same site with a few minor differences 
written in the code that resides in DocumentRoot.

My company is wanting to keep this configuration for port 80 and add an 
SSL certificate for just the and hostnames. 
Is it possible to have Virtualhosts for just the 443 port and still 
allow * to react the same way it does now? Or will I have to 
add a VirtualHost for every subdomain?  If this is possble, what would 
my httpd.conf configuration look like?  Please let me know if you need 
more information.

Thank you in advance,
