SSL Host Header Problem in IIS 6.0
Posted on 2007-10-17
Hi, I'm having some trouble getting the SSL certificate on our IIS 6.0 site working.
I generated a CSR and got the certificate, installed it in the Certificates snap in as usual and added using the directory security tab in IIS manager like normal.
I then entered the command line command from the adminscripts folder to make SSL work with a host header where the two arguments are changed for the site:
cscript.exe adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/xxxxxxxxxx/SecureBindings ":443:secure.mysite.com"
For some reason the darn thing won't work! I even checked the internet DNS server to make sure the A record was in there for the domain and it sure is.
I've verified the certificate is installed and valid. The SecureBindings command went through just fine and says the header is added.
I'm not using a wildcard certificate, just a single common name certificate, but this should still work since I entered the secure bindings command for the matching host header.
It still won't work. Any ideas? Maybe this relates to the problem I'm having in question 22880718.
