How do I setup an SSL certificate on my website so that https://secure.mydomain.com/ will display exactly the same as http://www.mydomain.com/ only securely, basically I want to be able to have the domain secure.mydomain.com encrypted but I don't want to treat it as a folder in my webservers root...
1) create the secure.yourdomain.com with dedicated ip address
2) install the ssl certificate
3) modify the httpd.conf file find the virtual host directive for the secure.yourdomain.com and change the document root same as your www.yourdomain.com
4) restart your apache
5) visit https://secure.yourdomain.com
