WordPress MU Domain Mapping
Single SSL for many subdirectory sites (4 posts)

    I currently have 5 subdirectory sites mapped with their respective domains, and I would like to use one dedicated ip and one ssl cert for all sites.

    Any information on how this could be achieved would be greatly appreciated.

    I thank you in advance.

    All the best,
    Brent

    You need a SSL certificate for each top level domain. The fact that you are using domain mapping to host the sites does not alter that SSL requirement.

    Thank you for your response Ron.

    Just for my clarification, let me know if this is correct.

    mydomain.com = Main WP install, needs its own SSL.
    All of the following domains are mapped with plugin

    1. parked-domain1.com = Top level, needs its own SSL.
    2. parked-domain2.com = Top level, needs its own SSL.
    3. any-other-domains.com = Top level, needs its own SSL.

    If the above is correct, then using "define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);") would not effectively to secure wp-logins for all mapped domains with one SSL, correct?

    If you turn off remote login & set the dashboards to run in the unmapped domain then you can get by with just the main domain cert. Otherwise you need a cert for each domain.
