Subject [users@httpd] ssl-vhost-mixing issue
Date Tue, 15 Feb 2011 14:07:25 GMT
Apache 2.2.14

Hello List,

have a question to ssl and two vhosts.

i have 2 ip-based vhosts for enabling ssl for one domain in httpd.conf

<VirtualHost ip1.ip1.ip1.ip1:443>
    SSLCertificateFile crt1

<VirtualHost ip2.ip2.ip2.ip2:443>
    SSLCertificateFile crt2

document-root and Servername for the two vhosts are identical. i do this to 
switch the domain to a new ip and new certificate at the same time without 
downtime by DNS.
ip1 and crt1 are the new ones.
Now i can view an odd behaviour.

I call which is pointing still to old ip2 and old 
certificate crt2. Now i view details of certificate in browser and wonder 
that i can sea details of crt1, but crt1 belongs to the other vhost with 
other ip.
seems that always the crt from the first vhost with same servername is 
loaded. if i turn around order of the both vhosts and ip2 comes before ip1 
in httpd.conf then all is ok and details of crt2 are displayed.
Is this an expected behaviour? Seems to me that Apache is mixing some VHost 
Params in this Case. Bug or expected?
