Apache and HTTPS Odd Behavoir

up-tech asked
Last Modified: 2015-06-30
I have quite a few vhost configurations on my servers, but lets take two for example:

site1.example.com and site2.example.com.

Site 1 vhost:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName  site1.example.com
        ServerAlias site1.example.com

Open in new window

Site 2 vhost:
NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName site2.example.com
        ServerAlias site2.example.com
        Redirect permanent / https://site2.example.com/

<VirtualHost *:443>
        ServerName  site2.example.com
        ServerAlias site2.example.com

Open in new window

The odd thing is, if I go to https://site1.example.com the server responds using the vhost conf and certificate of the site2 ssl configuration, any ideas?
