SSL localhost.localdomain instead of my dot com

I have pointed to the SSL certificates in the VirtualHost in httpd.conf as I have on all my web servers but in this case it's pulling localhost.localdomain instead of my dot com.

I know the httpd.conf is correct because I copied it from a working server. The ssl.conf file was also copied from working server.

I've done this many times and it's worked fine until I updated php to 5.3 from 5.1. Not sure how to proceed.

Usually the virtualhost that is tied to port 443 is in SSL.conf
You can only have one virtualhost that is bound to port ip:443
Can you post the configuration?

I love that statement.

Chances are, you left a default host enabled in your conf files.  As arnold pointed out, a specific IP:port combination is bound to a single certificate.  In Apache, if you have more than one certificate bound to an IP:port, Apache will use whichever it finds first.  In some default installations, Apache is pre-configured with a default SSL host, using a certificate for localhost.localdomain, and it will usually be found first unless you have taken care to disable or move it.
