Hostname issue with SSL Certificate request.

  1. Hi

    I have setup ISPConfig using the The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.10 Server (Edgy Eft) guide.

    I am successfully running my domain completely self-hosted now but I am however having a problem with my SSL certificate.

    I can successfully create the signing request, but when I copy-and-paste the request to the SSL provider they tell me the hostname does not match the original certificate of hostname of

    So my question is, is there a way to generate the certificate without the www?:confused:

  3. Thanks for your reply.

    The SSL certificate was already created and issued to another server without the www and I'm not sure if I can get it changed at the SSL provider.

    Now I have moved the site to self-hosted I have discovered this problem with the www hostname when trying to issue the SSL certificate.

    It's an e-commerce site and the shopping cart software automatically redirects the url to when entering SSL mode.

    Has anyone got any ideas?

    You vcan use the SSL certificate request, the key and the certificate from your old server and replace the certificate files that ISPConfig created in the ssl folder in the website directory. Then restart your apache webserver.
