    What do you need to do in order to:

    1) make one or multiple pages of a web site secure i.e. https://

    2) make one or more pages username/password protected i.e. login box appears

    Thanks

    Check the SSL checkbox in the settings of the site, the safe it. When you open the site in ISPConfig again, you wil find a new SSL tab, open the tab and fill out the fields, select "create certificate" in the action field and ISPConfig generates a self signed SSL Certificate for you. Please have a look at the manual too.

    Open the site with the webFTP program, click on a folder, click on the protect directory button and enter username(s) and password(s).

    WAP are the equivalent for HTML pages for WAP mibile phone browsers. It will enable your customers to serve WAP pages with the correct mime type that where uploaded to the webspace.

    An SSL certificate does already exist for this IP.

    So what does this mean..... cant I have a secure section for every customer, I am working with two nics and two static ips.

    Thanks

    But if you want to use this with ISPConfig you will have to enable SSL for the web anyway.

    You can have an SSL website for every IP address. This is limited by apache webserver, not ISPConfig.

    Was the error from ISPConfig.

    So what I dont understand is that other ISP offer a secure area for all there customers, so they all cant have a ip assigned to them, there are not enough IP's in the world for that.... or am I missing something....

    Say each of my 100 customers wanted to have their shopping cart on a secure page, how do I do that....???

    Thanks

    You need an IP for each SSL encrypted domain. Read the apache documentation if you dont believe me.

    If the client wants to have http://www.clientdomain.com and https://www.clientdomain.com you will have to assign him an IP address.

    The only other solution is that you have one ssl enabled website where you symlink the clients web directorys. Example:

    https://www.provider.com/client1/
    https://www.provider.com/client2/
    https://www.provider.com/client3/
