Question: How to install Shared SSL on VirtualHost?

Solution:
Following are steps to install Shared SSL on VirtualHost:

    1. Install OpenSSL package and mod_ssl for apache.

    2. In apache configuration file make following changes:
  • LoadModule mod_ssl
  • Make your apache server to listen at SSL default port 443.
  • Install and configure certificate on the VirtualHost.
  • Specify port 80 with the Name VirtualHost that contains the IP address as of your installed VirtualHost like (NameVirtualHost IP: 80).
