Recently I stopped hosting some sites for a couple of friends. I had been toying around with the idea of moving conrey.org to a secure (https) server and associated mail services as well. I had been getting a rising number of IIS/MS attacks against my server, specifically to one of the vhosts, and although they were more annoying than anything else, I wanted to get some SSL love running. As I’ve painfully learned, apache2 only allows for one ssl enabled site, and so I needed to move off all of the other sites that weren’t going to be assessable after the transition. (I didn’t want any port 80 traffic allowed at all). It was very interesting telling people that a service that I had been providing for years in some cases was being halted. So I upgraded my server, installed my certificate, and here we are in all of our https goodness. I’m sure I’ll send some updates as I start taking a look at what ssl can do for this site.
