SSL Name Based Virtual Hosting (like Apache can do) RRS feed

  • Question

  • User487240354 posted

    We need to do SSL Name Based Virtual Hosting using the same ip and same port (443) for multiple domains We have already researched this issue and it seems to be a limitation within IIS7 that will not allow this (carry over from iis6). We need to know if there is a patch that will fix this or if there are appcmd commands that will in-fact make this work.

    The appcmd command that I used already is the following:
    %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set site /site.name:"<IISSiteName>" /+bindings.[protocol='https',bindingInformation='*:443:<hostHeaderValue>']
    The command above lets a hostname be added for https to the virtual website. The problem is when you go and choose a cert from the gui it only lets you use a cert that was already used for a previous virtual site using https.

    Apache is able to do the SSL Name Based Virtual Hosting (please see http://www.g-loaded.eu/2007/08/10/ssl-enabled-name-based-apache-virtual-hosts-with-mod_gnutls/ ).
