    Hi everyone

    i need to protect a subdomain of the site with a ssl cert (better will be if i can use a wildcard cert)

    In ISPConfig i've tried create a certifciate with ssl domain "*" but no CSR is created. The certificate will be created only if i set as ssl domain ""

    What i've to do in ISPConfig to do this?

    There is a problem with wildcard ssl certs in that version (the problem is the * in the ssl cert path name), it is fixed in the beta. Normally you should not install beta versions, but in my opinion, this beta is stable enough so that you could install it in case that you cantw ait for the release.

    the only real issue is in the mail aliasdomain function in /etc/postfix/, change the line:

    additional_conditions = and type != 'aliasdomain' and active = 'y' and server_id = 1


    additional_conditions = and active = 'y' and server_id = 1

    and restart postfix.

    apache does not support sl certs for subfolders, a ssl cert van only be applied to a vhost, which is represented by a website in ispconfig. So I highly recommend to create a new website for instead of putting it in a subfolder of another site?

    I just tried creating a ssl cert with *, and it's not working in RC2. Any ideas?

    Looks like I got it. I had to manually delete the existing certificates from the SSL directory before it would create the wildcard certificates.
