  • So I have a standard virtual host wordpress installation on It works great! I already have an SSL site ( on port 443, so I cannot have wordpress on port 443. I have a new virtual host on port 8443 pointing to the same location as the installed wordpress:

    The problem is all other SSL parts of 8443 work fine with the cert for BUT, when I go to it /always/ redirects me to Hence since SSL you cannot do name based virtual hosts, it’s actually the site of (443 implied) but called .com.

    What kind of rewrite rules or mods can I do to wordpress? Changing the wordpress base URL to won’t work, because I don’t want foreign visitors getting the “unknow CA” error. However, when I want to administer the site, I want to use the SSL version. I already have the CA in my trusted root.

    Again, this is a wordpress mod_rewrite issue because all other sites under the 8443 virtual host work fine (even CakePHP).
