Subject Re: [users@httpd] Question: How to secure multiple URL's with SSL on a single host with a single domain?
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2014 19:56:02 GMT
Hello Nate,

if all your URLs are in the same domain, I would expect only one virtual host. 
This can contain multiple <Directory xxx> sections for your purpose. This way 
you only have one host on port 443. 
Hope that helps
