configure SSL for a domain alias
 
Hi,

I'm tryin to configure a SSL certificate for a website that will be access under the url https://extranet.mydomain.com

However as I have my subdomains for mydomain.com and to avoid conflicts with .htaccess, each subdomain.mydomain.com is created as a seperate site. I then create an alias for the site.

So I have the following configuration :
SITES | ALIAS
wiki.com | wiki.mydomain.com
extranet.com | extranet.mydomain.com
...

So I'm not sure that if I purchase a certificate for extranet.mydomain.com it will work. In ISPconfig to create the certificate I can only do it on the fake domain extranet.com.

Do you know if it would work. Or how I should configure it to actually work?

Thanks,
Celia

If you create an SSL cert for extranet.mydomain.com and then access the site using extranet.com, you will get a warning in your browser because of a domain mismatch.
