    Hey everyone,

    first of all: Merry CHristmas and may the odds....no wait, wrong quote.
    Any way:

    I am currently finishing the migration to a new customer environment.
    I have a server for the cvustomer websites running the latest ISPConfig3.
    The server (s1.example.com) has a valid SSL Cert for this certain domain.
    Now, when a customer accesses the ISPConfig interface using customerdomain.com:8080, he gets the message that the SSL Cert is not valid for this domain, which is correct.

    But some users are startled by this message.
    Is there a confortable way (using redirects or VHost config) to bypass this problem. I don't want to buy valid certificates for all domains just for this info message to "go away".

    I thought about an "administrative" domain at first, but then I thought....
    If S1 gets crowded and I need to order a second server, the customer has to remember two different domains fopr two sites....which is NOT what I want. I would like to have the user's site administration KISS....keep it simple, stupid...



    THank you in advance.

    Kind Regards

    ZeroEnna

    You can not redirect a https-connection. The ssl-transaction takes place before any can redirect could be used.

    Why donĀ“t you use the same domain for s1 and s-backup? You can also just change the ip for your admin-server and your clients will switch to the backup-server (set the ttl as low as possible).
