Static IP addresses

Sorry if this has been covered already…
I have static IP addresses and wish to have a domain with ssl.
It’s saying that the IP is virtual or something.
Oh yeah. I still have the GPL version.
Is there a step-by-step howto on adding the IP addresses correctly to Webmin, and making VM use them for SSL usage.
Thanks

VM slaps CPanel and co in the FACE! :slight_smile:

Hi,
You will need at least two IP addresses to apply SSL to a virtual server. One is needed to run the host box (the default IP) and then Apache requires a dedicated IP address for each virtual server that you want to go SSL.

Providing you have the additional IPs then when you create an account for a virtual server you will assign that IP in the account creation, Virtualmin will then create a virtual interface (looks like a sub interface when listed) on your primary interface.

Hope that helps :slight_smile:

Yeah. What Dan said. I answered this in another thread, but Dan said it better.

Actually, I can expand on this a bit, as folks do still seem to find it confusing.

You don’t need to tell Webmin or Virtualmin about your IPs until you create domains that need them. They don’t even have to exist! (In fact, it’s simpler if they don’t.)

When you create your virtual server, at the bottom of the form there’s a section labeled “IP address and forwarding”.

For “Network interface” you’d choose “Virtual with IP” and fill in the new IP. If you have already created the addresses on your system (i.e. if they show up when you do ifconfig, or if they have entries /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts) click the already active checkbox.

All done!
