Unexplained SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER if specified NameVirtualHost


#1

Hi everyone,

I’ve successfully installed LetEncryp and I issued my certificate for several domain names.

I have a vhost for each domain and I selected to make all request secure (everything redirect to the https://)

Everything is OK with a wildcard vhost, like this:
<VirtualHost *:80>
and this:
<VirtualHost *:443>

But browsers raise an SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER if I specified the vhost like that:
<VirtualHost mysite.com:80>
<VirtualHost mysite.com:443>

Do someone understand why it’s not working with a specified NameVirtualHost ?

I look forward to hearing from you.

I don’t know why you’re getting that error, but I’m more interested in the why you would want such a configuration?

I’ve got all my name based virtual hosts behind a wild card vhost. That’s the way name-based virtual hosts are supposed to work.

Hi Osiris,

I’d like to specified my vhost name/IP address because I want them to fallback to the 000-default.conf vhost.

Currently, the don’t necessarily fallback to 000-default.conf because I may have a vhost which take precedence. So, let’s say I’m trying to reach fr.mysite.com whom vhost doesn’t exist, I will have Apache launch another random website (in my vhost list).

That said, there may be a fix to this issue and that will solve my need to specify the vhost names…
