    SSL problems with cPanel

    I ordered a SSL certificate and I installed it on secure.priorahost.com. I used the same account details as the master Priorahost account for the SSL certificate as I was told that this would be OK.

    Whenever I upload files to the secure directory which is where the contents for secure.priorahost.com are stored, I cannot access the content using the HTTPS protocol. Here is an example:

    http://secure.priorahost.com/completessl_white.gif
    https://secure.priorahost.com/completessl_white.gif

    Here is what the SSL reseller told me:

    Ok, I see what you mean. I've seen that before, usually it happens if the certificate is installed before the subdomain is created. But I don't know if that is the only case where it happens.

    What is happening is that https://secure.priorahost.com/ is pointing to you /public_html directory as opposed to the /public_html/secure directory. If you add the secure folder after the url you will see what I mean.

    For example:
    https://secure.priorahost.com/secure...essl_white.gif

    Some people want this becuase you able to display all files and folders securely by accessing them via the subdomain.domain.
    Please help
    Thank you for your time

    Yes cause the https:// one is actuallying going to public_html/ as for the http:// is going to public_html/secure/

    Have the host edit the httpd.conf so that you https:// goes to public_html/secure/ as well.

    only other way would be to use https://secure.yourdomain.com/secure/picture.gif unless you can get the host to make the above changes for you in the config file.

    Can there not be a easier fix? As well, where in the httpd.conf should I look?

    No you will need to modify the virtual host entry in httpd.conf , unless you have root you cannot do that.

    Once you go into httpd.conf , search for the domain and you will get to that area, and in the one that deals with SSL, edit the directory.
