Apache proxy over port 443
I have a host (the central server) and four different guests. Each guest hosts a website for a different domain. Each domain name resolves to my host server from outside. And on my host I configured Apache to use VirtualHosts and ProxyPass (& ProxyPassReverse) to redirect requests for port 80 to the correct corresponding guest. This works correctly. Joy
But two of the domains also have ssl configured and are also listening on port 443. And here is where it goes wrong. I get ssl certificate errors, and I'm at a loss how to fix these.
NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.1:80 <VirtualHost 192.168.1.1:80> ServerName www.domain1.nl ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyPass / http://www.domain1.nl/ ProxyPassReverse / http://www.domain1.nl/ ErrorLog logs/domain1-error_log CustomLog logs/domain1-access_log combined </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost 192.168.1.1:80> ServerName www.domain2.net ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyPass / http://www.domain2.net/ ProxyPassReverse / http://www.domain2.net/ ErrorLog logs/domain2-error_log CustomLog logs/domain2-access_log combined </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost 192.168.1.1:80> ServerName www.domain3.org ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyPass / http://www.domain3.org/ ProxyPassReverse / http://www.domain3.org/ ErrorLog logs/domain3-error_log CustomLog logs/doman3-access_log combined </VirtualHost> NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.1:443 <VirtualHost 192.168.1.1:443> ServerName www.domain2.net ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyPass / https://www.domain2.net ProxyPassReverse / https://www.domain2.net ErrorLog logs/domain2-error_log CustomLog logs/domain2-access_log combined </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost 192.168.1.1:443> ServerName www.domain3.org ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyPass / https://www.domain3.org/ ProxyPassReverse / https://www.domain3.org/ ErrorLog logs/domain3-error_log CustomLog logs/domain3-access_log combined </VirtualHost>
As I said, the normal port 80 requests get routed to the correct server just the way I want them. But requests on port 443 lead to a:
But this either had no effect or made matters worst.
My stop-gap fix for now is to redirect port 443 traffic using iptables on the host and then it works correctly for one domain. But the downside of that is that I cannot choose between https://domain2 and https://domain3 based on url. In iptables it's either domain2 or domain3.Can't tell an OS by it's GUI

hmmm I know this might sound silly, but what does the access and error logs says when you get ssl certificate erros

Well, you say you get this error, "ssl_error_rx_record_too_long". Are you sure that only https requests are going to port 443? Anyway, I'll run this problem by some colleagues at work tomorrow who deal with this stuff all the time and see what they say.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

On the host error log:

I know the "ssl_error_rx_record_too_long" mainly from misconfigured VirtualHosts (the error message is a bit cryptic) and I've long fiddled with the settings on the host VirtualHost directives.
If I try this:
