Apache Redirect from https to https

Nikolaos Kakouros asked:

I am trying to redirect without a rewrite rule from eg https://www.domain.com to https://www.domain.net . I have a wildcard certificate for *.domain.net . This yields the following warning in my error_log

[warn] RSA server certificate wildcard CommonName (CN) `*.domain.net’ does NOT match server name!?

This makes sense and I understand why the warning. I would like to ask if there is a way to use the Redirect directive to accomplish the above without the warnings. Here is my virtual hosts in ssl.conf:

<VirtualHost *:443>
    SSLEngine on
    ServerName www.domain.net
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/domain

    SSLOptions -FakeBasicAuth -ExportCertData +StrictRequire +OptRenegotiate -StdEnvVars
    SSLStrictSNIVHostCheck off
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:443>
    SSLEngine on
    ServerName www.domain.com
    ServerAlias www.domain.info
    Redirect permanent / https://www.domain.net
</VirtualHost>

Also, if there is a solution, can it be used for redirection from htps://domain.com to htps://www.domain.com?
Thanks a lot!

My answer:


www.domain.com (and for that matter www.domain.info) are not the same domain as www.domain.net, hence the warning. You should have certificates for those domains as well, if you need to avoid this warning.
