I have a site mysitefashion.com

I administer it using admin.mysitefashion.com

The httpd.conf file looks like this:


# A virtualhost for the main mysite website
<VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xx.xxx:80>
  ServerName www.mysitefashion.com
  DocumentRoot /home/hindrm/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28/mysitesite/mysite
  CustomLog logs/mysite.log combined
  ErrorLog logs/mysite_error.log
  <Location /*.jsp>
    JkUriSet worker ajp13:localhost:8009
  </Location>
</VirtualHost>

# A virtualhost on the standard port 80 to redirect requests
# for the admin area to the real admin virtualhost on the ssl port
<VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xx.xxx:80>
  ServerName admin.mysitefashion.com
  CustomLog logs/public.log combined
  ErrorLog logs/public_error.log
  Redirect permanent / https://admin.mysitefashion.com
</VirtualHost>
# An SSL virtualhost for the main site
<VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xx.xxx:443>
  ServerName www.mysitefashion.com
  DocumentRoot /home/hindrm/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28/mysitesite/mysite
  SSLEngine on
  SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/mysitemainssl.crt
  SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/mysitefashionsslprivate.key
  SSLCACertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/mysitemainsslCA.crt
  CustomLog logs/mysitesecure.log combined
  ErrorLog logs/mysitesecure_error.log
  <Location /*.jsp>
    JkUriSet worker ajp13:localhost:8009
  </Location>
</VirtualHost>

# An SSL virtualhost for the admin site
<VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xx.xxx:443>
  ServerName admin.mysitefashion.com
  DocumentRoot /home/hindrm/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28/mysiteadminsite/mysiteadmin
  SSLEngine on
  SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/mysiteadminssl.crt
  SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/mysiteadminsslprivate.key
  CustomLog logs/mysiteadmin.log combined
  ErrorLog logs/mysiteadmin_error.log
  <Location /*.jsp>
    JkUriSet worker ajp13:localhost:8009
  </Location>
</VirtualHost>




the  xxx.xxx.xx.xxx part represents the IP address of my server (there is only one).  

when I browse to https://admin.mysitefashion.com I find that the certificate which is used is the signed one I have set up for the www.mysitefashion.com.  I'd like to know why the /mysiteadminssl.crt certificate is not used.

Can anyone help?

SSL on Apache requires that you use a unique IP address - the reason that you are getting the first SSL site is because you are only using one IP address.
