Wrong SSL Certificates Being Used

May 21, 2007

I'm just looking for some background information or a place where I can learn more about this.

Here's the problem:

The web site runs on a dedicated Apache server. There's 2 SSL certificates installed, one for e-commerce for https://www.mysite.com and one to help with the administrative interface for https://admin.mysite.com. I run a custom php application that forces the web page from http://www.mysite.com to https://www.mysite.com when going to an e-commerce page.

Generally everything runs Ok but a few times this year there has been a problem where the php application points to https://www.mysite.com/ecom.php but instead it gets https://admin.mysite.com/ecom.php and gets a page not found.

In discussing this with my web hosting company they claim they haven't changed anything but they do manage to fix the problem and get the web site working correctly again.

I generally figure that the web hosting company has done some type of maintenance on the web server and messed-up the dns entries or something for the SSL part of the web site but this is really outside my area of experience. I'm trying to understand what went wrong and where the entries are that determine when going to SSL which SSL certificate/URL is used.

SSL Certificates :: How To Set Up?

Jul 1, 2008

I need to setup SSL.

I've never used SSL on any of my websites and I've never really understood how the certificates work.

I understand that SSL is used as a secure connection protocol (https://) and that it needs a valid certificate so that the encrypted data transfer can be committed.

OK makes sence, but why do some websites seem to have such difficultly setting up valid certificates?

You can setup SSL by with Apache + OpenSSL, but why do website hosting providers still allow you to purchase SSL certificates (isn't it supposed to be free)?

Finally, is it possible to setup SSL for a multiple-domain (Victual Host) server?

SSL Certificates (Where Do I Get One?)

Jan 31, 2008

I have a client who requested me to do a website for his credit union company.

Some of the pages are forms that require customers to enter crucial information ie ssn etc etc. I told him that this can be broken into..and therefore he would need a secure way of transmitting this information. Therefore would the SSL certificate work for this issue? Where do i get one? We have a dedicated server and do i need to configure anything on that? Where can i get a trusted SSL Certificate, and ofcourse help to install it.

A year ago I bought a Geotrust quick SSL vertificate from my dedicated server host for about 299.

Now I see companies like server tastic selling the same Geotrust cert for $79 ehen Geotrusts website is still $299. How can that be? what am I missing here.

My server with APF (firewall script) with BFD logs over 1215 events today of some hack user or bot trying to login to my server from various of IP trying many kind of usernames...

Is it possible to customize BFD to automatically ban the IP directly if the username they try to login with it was wrong 2 times?

For example the username is qwerty
The hack is trying with many usernames john, root, master, boot, etc...

Wrong Cpu Reported

Jul 25, 2008

A friend of mine has a server that the provider claims is a Core2Duo, but looking at /proc/cpuinfo, the cpu is shown as:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 000 @ 1.86GHz

What would cause this? I'm not saying the host is lying, I've just never seen this before and I haven't found anyone else with this problem on google. The processor is supposed to be a e6300, so the 1.86GHz speed is right. Also, this has happened on 2 different linux distros.

Something Wrong With My Nameservers

May 17, 2007

I've been told by a few people that something's wrong with my nameservers. But I'm not sure what it is that's wrong.

the site => www.visualpoetry.ca

the DNSs: ns1.visualpoetry.ca / ns2.visualpoetry.ca

a zone check says:


---- warning ----
w: Nameservers are all part of the same AS

* Adv: ZoneCheck

To avoid loosing all connectivity with the autoritative DNS in case of a routing problem inside your Autonomous System, it is advised to host the DNS on different AS.

All the nameservers are part of the same Autonomous System (AS number 30058), try to have some of them hosted on another AS.

* generic

w: Host doesn't reply to ICMP requests (firewall?)

* ns1.wablue.info./
* ns2.wablue.info./

w: Reverse for the nameserver IP address doesn't match

* ns2.wablue.info./
* ns1.wablue.info./

I'm not sure how to interpret this.

Something Wrong With DNS Settings

Jun 4, 2007

I have bought a dedicated server with FDC servers and installed a script. Initially everything was working fine but now the site is not accessible. Everything is alright with the script installed but looks like there is some issue with the DNS settings. When I ping the IP address (it's dedicated ip address) it gives me an error. When I Ping the domain name, it just closes the window after few mins. Can someone experienced with WHM help me to fix the DNS settings? Of course, I am ready to pay for your help (though i might not have a very higher budget)

EV SSL Certificates Installation

Oct 26, 2009

I purchased an EV SSL Cert, and all is fine. Installed via cPanel, and I get the green address bar in Firefox, but not in IE.

Comodo (the vendor) have an Auto-Enhancer feature which automatically tells IE to give me a green bar. They state in their FAQ the following instructions to install the feature:

Replace the bundle file that is in use for the web site.

Use the 'SSLCertificateChainFile' directive instead of the 'SSLCACertificateFile'/'SSLCACertificatePath' directives.

I have download a .CA-BUNDLE file from them.

Please tell me, now what do I do? I am at a lost at their instuctions, and going by my dealings with them, I think I can get help from you guys more accurately and quickly.

The server runs WHM/cPanel 11 with Apache 2 with mod_ssl. Full root access, but I am a Linux newbie.

Shared SSL Certificates?

Jan 27, 2005

I do web hosting (reseller); how much, in USD per year, do you think is a "reasonable" fee to charge clients for a shared SSL connection ?

The SSL is going to cost me $$ per year and I may have some use for it, but if clients want a shared SSL, instead of buying their own, I need to apportion the costs I incur somehow, and (maybe) make some small profit. I see the shared SSL as more of a service, but clients should pay _some_ $$ if they want to use one.

Any ideas on how much I should charge, please ?

Where Do You Purchase SSL Certificates From?

Jul 13, 2009

I currently have a reseller accounts from Thawte, Comodo, and RapidSSL, but have realized that I can purchase Comodo and Geotrust SSL certificates cheaper from Namecheap.com and Enom.com

Namecheap.com support is (as always) superb. Any opinions from Enom.com support?

What about Resellerclub.com? I know that they recently started to sell Thawte certs at very good prices. How good is their support?

CPanel And SSL Certificates

May 6, 2009

I am continuously getting this error message in my error_logs
Invalid method in request x16x03x01

I searched and found out that it is something to do with httpd.conf configurations and SSL. So I asked my provider to check it and solve. First they acknowledge that it was SSL issue but later I was told


Since cPanel controls how the virtualhosts are configured this error most likely cannot be fix since cPanel will just revert the change. ..... The SSL connection with the selfsigned cert works beyond kicking out the error, but again cPanel controls the httpd.conf and how the * virtualhosts are configured.

So my question is, Is it common to have this error message with a cPanel VPS?
Is there any solution?

I think I hit this error every time when I login to WHM or cPanel of every domain.
Should this be fixed or it's not exactly an issue.

I've been using a single VeriSign SSL for years, of course renewing it! Now I need to get SSL on a few other servers for secure WCF services (Windows IIS web sites). I see there are several SSL cert vendors out there from very cheap to very expensive. VeriSign being on the expensive side, then there's geotrust, thawte, etc. Are they all the same in the end, or is there a catch to these cheaper ones?
