Subject [users@httpd] How to auto-select SSL certificate by hostname
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2018 18:51:01 GMT
I am trying to configure a server that has the singular purpose of
redirecting https://anyhost.com to https://www.anyhost.com. Without SSL,
this is trivial: create a single configuration that uses Rewrite to redirect
to www.{%HOST}.

 

Bringing SSL into it complicates things however. We'll be doing redirects
for 1000+ domains, so managing hostname --> certificate mappings with VHosts
is a challenge. We can fit 100 names on each certificate, so we'll need to
handle at minimum 10 certificates. 

 

>From my reading of the documentation, each VHost can only be configured for
a single certificate. Is there any method, with or without the use of a
module, for having a single configuration that can serve the appropriate
certificate automatically?

 

The behavior I'm attempting to emulate is available on Amazon Application
Load Balancers. Multiple certificates can be added to a single ALB, and it
examines the Host header to determine which certificate is appropriate with
zero configuration of any domain-certificate mapping.
