Default SSL Cert for site

How can I set up a site to use an SSL cert on a different port like 444. Right now, every time I try to add a self signed cert to a site it complains that there already is a cert for the server IP. Do I have to add another IP in order to use a cert on one of my sites. It seems that once the cert is in use for ISPConfig itself, I can no longer use a self signed cert on any other sites.

Yes.

ISPConfig is not using any certs. It is a requirement of the ssl specification in apache that every ssl cert has its own IP address. So if you add more IP addresses, you can have more ssl certs. There is a patch for apache to use more then one ssl cert on a IP, but I do not recommend to use that.

Default Ssl

If ISPConfig does not use any cert then how does it use https on port 81? It is using a self signed cert in the name of my server (I am trying ISPConfig out on my staging server). You can, and I have done this, add SSL service on the same IP but on a different port. However, I can add another another IP if I have to but how does doing this affect my current install of ISPConfig?

Thanks for your reply.

If you want to use a different port for SSL, then you won't be able to manage that https site through ISPConfig because it assumes port 443 for https. You'd have to configure Apache manually then.

Adding another IP is simple: after you've configured the IP on your OS, you can add it under Management > Server > Settings.
