That is true about the multiple ssl hosts in apache. My problem occurs because I am natting 1 real address to multiple internals. Because of the chicken and egg scenario with ssl I cannot do named virtuals on the apache server with ssl (only ip based virtuals) so I need a method that will forward the request based on the host headers. The method I came up with was to use squid in reverse mode.
So are you telling me I can use your webserver and have multiple named ssl virtuals? If I can you have an instant sale.
I need this because I host some e-commerce sites for different customers. they each have their own ssl cert so a wildcard cert will not work.
