Question https

As far as I know

you simply upload it to the web directory.
Just enable https for your client.

for more info on https
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS

you can buy a certificate and
Also I think you need extra ip address for real certificate.

please correct me if I am wrong...

** you simply upload it to the web directory.

Do you mean the normal "web" folder for the client


**Just enable https for your client.

Do you mean enable SSL for that web site.

** you can buy a certificate and
Also I think you need extra ip address for real certificate.

I cant believe this is true... if I big isp has 10,000 hosting clients and all of them can have https pages I dont think that that isp is going to have 10,000 ip addresses available.

Or perhaps they do I dont know, but there must be an easy way to give client https access.

Yes. Enable SSL and click on "Save". Afterwards go to the site administration again, and you'll see a new tab "SSL". There you can create your SSL certificate.

It is true, you can have only one SSL web site per IP address and port. It's an Apache limitation.

Actually its a protocol limitation... Because all the traffic is encrypted the hostname is not processed until later. So hostbased ssl virtualhosting is just nog possible with !any! webserver.
