Hosts and SSL questions

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am working on some new sites and would like to do this:

  1. Public site (Joomla) in WWW root. I would like to enable SSL so that I can set the Joomla global config to run the admin side over ssl.
  2. A separate, private site (Joomla) completely over ssl.

It seems to me that I should, rather than having a separate SSL directory, use WWW as the SSL root, which would allow me to host both site in WWW, and choose the admin over ssl option for the first and front and backend over ssl for the second.

 

Has anyone input or advice regarding this?

 

Many thanks,

 

Jeff

Yes that is the preferred way of doing things.

 

I think US uses a separate SSL folder purely for demonstration, making it easier for new users.
