    Question hosted virtual server (apache) and ssl?


    I'm using a hosted virtual server, and don't have access to the httpd.conf-file. Is there any way to set up mod_ssl using a .htaccess-file? Or any other way for that matter.

    If your host is currently running mod_ssl, then even if you have access to httpd.conf, you still can't configure mod_ssl for your site. Not to mention when you are trying to do it via .htaccess.

    mod_ssl is for ONE domain per CERT per IP. That said, if your host's domain is www.default.com, you can't get https://yoursite.default.com. Even you have access to httpd.conf, you still can't configure mod_ssl to your site at https://www.yoursite.com. Unless IP-based vhost is being used.

    Ok, I didn't explain the situation good enough.

    I have my own domainname (www.somname.com) and my host has a completely different name (www.differentname.no). I also got my own IP-address. The virtual part is that it's only one server.

    >> I have my own domainname
    >> I also got my own IP-address

    That's all you need for qualification.

    But still, you can't configure mod_ssl via .htaccess. Are there any reasons why you don't tell your host to do it for you?
