Question: How to enable and install Name Based SSL Using SNI through HC9 Linux ?
Answer: Make sure that your Apache Web Server supports SNI extension and your web browser also supports SNI. Almost all new Linux Operating Systems support it.
- Login to HC panel and go to Cluster Configuration :: Manage Servers :: Cluster Settings and enable "Name Based SSL Using SNI" & “Dedicated SSL” under Linux Web Server Role.
- Both “Named Based SSL Using SNI” and “Dedicated SSL” can be installed by navigating to the same path i.e. Website Services :: Manage SSL :: Install SSL Certificate.
- To generate the CSR file for the domain follow this path Website Services :: Manage SSL :: Generate CSR and once it is generated successfully then acquire a certificate from a CA (Certificate Authority) against the generated CSR.
- Place the certificate file at web root path and then Install that SSL Certificate on your desired domain by going to this path Website Services :: Manage SSL :: Install SSL Certificate.
