    Someone knows a Howto for a SSL-proxy? I would like to reach so several Domains with only one IP over https. I use debian sarge with ISPConfig, mysql4.1, apache2 and php5.

    Thanks Madie

    I don't think there's any way to overcome this "one SSL web site per IP address" thing.

    I 'd like to prefer such a solution: https://domain1.tld/domain2.tld/ or much better https://domain2.domain1.tld/ shows to /var/www/webofdomain2.tld in SSL-mode. I think it will work also with the Apache, if https://domain1.tld is the only one domain with SSL-support on port 443. Naturally one can solve it also with a manually symlink in the webdir of domain1.tld, but I hope however that there is a more elegant way. I 've read somewhere that it also work with a SSL-Proxy.

    Maybe someone has an idea. Thanks.

    You would need to do something special with wildcard certificates. That way you could do something like site1.domain.tld, site2.domain.tld, site3.domain.tld and the do redirects/rewrites (mod_proxy comes to mind) in apache. But it's no way the preferred method. Certificates are there to identify a site to be trustworthy. How can you do that when redirecting to all kind of places? Also, wildcard certs are at least 4 times as expensive as regular certs.

    If you concerned about the contents of your data (encryption), I'd use selfsigned certificates.
