Installing two SSL Certificates on one server

Using one SSL certificate on the server is pretty easy, but what when we want to use SVN with apache and run the site which requires a payment system? Check if you do not have a second IP address before renting next server. Fortunately – Fasthosts give it for all servers.

Configuration happened to not be very complicated.

Upgrade to Apache 2.2 on Gentoo (PHP5 SVN SSL)

How to easily upgrade Apache 2.2 running PHP5 and SVN with SSL under Gentoo.

Recently I've upgraded the Apache on my gentoo server from 2.0 to 2.2.

Because it looked like just the minor change in numbers I ahven't even read the documentation. Silly me.

Everything stopped. SSL, SVN and even PHP. Mainly because configuration files are changed and it's upgrade is destroying some of the old settings. Someone said that it should be name Apache 3.0, from the configuration point of view – I have to agree.

Here are the steps one should take to make the whole process successful.

Installing a gentoo server without removable media

UPDATE:

  1. Fixed a problem with chrooting into read only squashfs system
  2. Fixed a problem with resolving DNS names

I've rented recently a dedicated hosts. It's preinstalled OS was Fedora. I decided to install gentoo, as that's my preferred choice since few years now.

Because strange Orange policy – they are blocking Samba (Windows) shares to the outside world – I couldn't mount a Gentoo mini CD installation disk on the dedicated server.
