Shared SSL the easy way.

    I find it truly amazing that Plesk does not have a direct way of adding shared SSL for plesk domains.

    As a recent convert to plesk - i was very disapointed that this feature was not implemented, as our policy is to allow shared SSL for my domain customers to test their sites with.

    So i set about looking into the easiest method, which for me involved using apache userDir.

    Anyway - here is how I solved the problem.

    1. I created a domain with my certificate as I normally would. Tested and working with the SSL certificate on a dedicated IP address.

    2. I then created a file named "redirect.php" with the following contents:

    $user $_GET["ftp_user"];
    header("Location: https\:\/\/[SECURE_DOMAIN]/~$user/");
    Where [SECURE_DOMAIN] is the certificate domain.

    3. In the conf folder of the secure domain I created a file named "vhost_ssl.conf" with the following content:

    <IfModule mod_userdir.c>
    UserDir httpdocs
            UserDir enable 
    Then run the following command:

    /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/websrvmng --vhost-name=[SECURE_DOMAIN]

    Where [SECURE_DOMAIN] is the certificate domain.

    4. after restarting the webserver I logged into Plesk as admin

    5. I created a custom button labled "Shared SSL" and with the URL to: https://[SECURE_DOMAIN]/redirect.php

    And the checkbox checked: "&ftp_user=<ftp_user>"

    Done :) - it works perfectly.

    Followed the instructions but when I try to pull up a php file or a link to the Miva shopping cart I get an error.

    My browser tries to download the php script as a downloadable file instead of processing it.

    The Miva error is:
    Configuration Error: The configured script directory for 'art'sDomain' does not exist
    Please contact the server administrator: webmaster@localhost

    Any ideas what I need to do to correct this. I feel like I am so close to actually getting this to work.
