Configure blogs for different domains with different SSL certificates
This section assumes:
- You have a working WordPress Multisite installation
- Your server has a static IP address
- You are able to log in to your server console using a tool like PuTTY (Windows) or SSH (Linux and Mac OS X)
- You own at least one custom domain name for which you can configure DNS settings
- You have defined your primary domain and blog as described here and you are able to log in to the WordPress Multisite dashboard.
- You have added one or more WordPress Multisite blogs with different domains as described here .
Follow these steps:
In order to set different SSL certificates for each new domain, configure each domain as a virtual host. Edit the /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/conf/httpd-vhosts.conf file and add a new virtual host for each new domain. The following code could be taken as an example:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName yourserverdomain.com ServerAlias *.yourserverdomain.com DocumentRoot "/opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs" Include "/opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/conf/httpd-app.conf" </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:443> ServerName yourserverdomain.com ServerAlias *.yourserverdomain.com DocumentRoot "/opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs" SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile "/opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/conf/certs/new_server.crt" SSLCertificateKeyFile "/opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/conf/certs/new_server.key" Include "/opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/conf/httpd-app.conf" </VirtualHost>
Remember to change the ServerName and ServerAlias directives to the correct values.
To specify a different SSL certificate for each domain, update the paths to the corresponding certificate files in the SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateKeyFile directives.
After ensuring that the certificates are properly generated and configured in the /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/conf/httpd-vhosts.conf file, include that file in Apache’s /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bitnami/bitnami-apps-vhosts.conf file as shown below:
After modifying the Apache configuration files, restart Apache to apply the changes.
