Subject Re: [users@httpd] Re: Enabling SSL on VirtualHosts Revisited
Date Fri, 18 Dec 2009 16:28:19 GMT
OK, so I added NameVirtualHost and NameVirtualHost above their respective sections and it seems to work
despite not being recommended as per the docs, but this was the only way to
do it because all my domains:,, etc point to a
single IP.

Any idea on why using hostnames in NameVirtualHost directives is not
recommended?  Is this something that could come back and bite me?

Thanks for the help!
