[warn] Init: SSL server IP/port conflict:


I have an VPS account with a2hosting and I'm getting this SSL error in my Apache error logs. I believe this is stopping my curl_exec() from being able to connect properly. How can I resolve this error message?


[warn] Init: SSL server IP/port conflict: elggtest.my1.com:443 (/home/httpd/elggtest.my1.com/conf/kloxo.elggtest.my1.com:71) vs. elggtest2.my1.com:443 (/home/httpd/elggtest2.my1.com/conf/kloxo.elggtest2.my1.com:71)

Are you trying to use more than a single certificate on that IP?
Routinet pointed out that your configuration files for:
/home/httpd/elggtest.my1.com/conf/kloxo.elggtest.my1.com:71) vs. elggtest2.my1.com:443 (/home/httpd/elggtest2.my1.com/conf/kloxo.elggtest2.my1.com:71)

Use the same IP/Port.

While you can host multiple web sites on the same IP, SSL binds to the IP/port and does not provide/use host headers as a means to differentiate. Since the Secure connection to the server has to be established first and then the request is sent, there is no way the server can know ahead of time which certificate and thereby encryption to present to the client browser.
