Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and WebMon Snow 4.0.3
Category : Technology/SnowLeopard10dot6dot2.txt
Snow Leopard 10.6.2 is out but it brings with it a few problems that I have to solve in a hurry.
WebMon Snow was hit. I had just updated it to 4.0.2 but now I have a new 4.0.3 version out.
The problem is, the Apache web server in Snow Leopard 10.6.2 has been updated to version 2.2.13. With Apache 2.2.13, SSL only works for the primary domain.
Prior to 2.2.13, we can still turn on SSL for the secondary virtual domains (but, of course, the cert can only be associated with the primary domain).
But with 2.2.13, we cannot even turn on the Virtual Host directive for the secondary domains within the IfModule SSL_module block. If we do that, we get an "[error] Illegal attempt to re-initialise SSL for server (theoretically shouldn't happen!)" message.
WebMon Snow 4.0.3 has been updated to disable attempts to turn on SSL for secondary domains.
