SSL - DNS - i switched to a dedicated IP
Posted on 2013-11-24
Hi i have an ecommerce website set up on a dedicated server that as more than 10 domains set up.
The dedi server runs plesk 11. centOS
its my first time installing a SSL cert so i just need some reassurance that what i have done is correct.
i read that i must have a dedicated ip for the ecommerce site so the SSL will work. i have added another IP to the dedi box and logged in to plesk to assign the new ip to the ecommerce site.
As soon as i changed the ip from the shared over to the new ip i got a message saying the ip doesn't resolve for the domain and i should fix the dns settings.
i guessed that this was just a warning as the dns had not transferred over to the new ip yet? so should just wait and the problem should be ok.
My other concern is: do i need to reupload the site to the new ip address? or will plesk do this automatically?
