The Solution

Edit the vhosts that are having the trouble they probably have a hardcoded IP.

Change it like so:





[root@thetor2017 conf]# grep *


apache shared ssl returns wrong certificate vhost
I believe it has to do with the IP they are hitting:

[root@thetor2017 conf]# host seconddomain.com
seconddomain.com has address
seconddomain.com mail is handled by 10 mail.seconddomain.com.
[root@thetor2017 conf]# host realtechtalk.com
realtechtalk.com has address
realtechtalk.com mail is handled by 10 mail.realtechtalk.com.
[root@thetor2017 conf]# host thirddomain.com.com
thirddomain.com.com has address
thirddomain.com.com mail is handled by 10 mail.thirddomain.com.com.
[root@thetor2017 conf]# host onedomain.com
onedomain.com has address

the IPs with .55 work fine with SSL

The IPs with .102 serve domain.cn because I believe it is the first vhost and cert by alphabet on that IP

the problem is in this vhost# domain.cn.conf:
it applies to onedomain.com and thirddomain.com.com because they use the same IP as domain.cn

Normally when using .55 the first domain it would find and search is the default 00-defaultsite.conf which points to the generic cert
On top of that domain.cn.conf has the IP as the vhost "" so it is the first match for SSL.

So it defaults to the first IP and cert it finds which is domain.cn rather than sending the default generic cert
