    I have a strato server, running debian 6 with ISPCFG 3 - all up to date.
    I now have a client that needs SSL so I got him his certificates and need to assign him his own IP. Web server is Apache2

    strato comes with 2 IPs by default.

    I added the second IP as you can see here:

    then changed his site to use this IP here:

    and when navigating to his site I get the following error when visiting the site's back end (wordpress):

    and the front end looks like this: the text is being loaded but all links to images and css files are broken !?

    quite weird, have put it back to use the default IP but how can I get this site to use its own IP?

    :-( ok, you are right. I should start thinking before asking such a silly question.

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:24:21:af:8a:99
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    inet6 addr: fe80::224:21ff:feaf:8a99/64 Scope:Link

    my system didn't know about the second IP :-( is there a how-to for this? I guess I need to edit the interfaces file, the closest I just could find via google is this:

    That should work. Make sure you indent as follows:

    auto eth0:1
    iface eth0:1 inet static
      network x.x.x.x
      broadcast x.x.x.x
      gateway x.x.x.x
: apache, ispcfg3
