Configuring multiple SSL sites on IIS
The article on TechNet explains that SSL host headers cannot be configured by using the IIS Manager user interface but that this has to be done using the command line and give this example syntax :
cscript.exe adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/<site identifier>/SecureBindings ":443:<host header>"
and in my environment it would be something like this:
cscript.exe c:\inetpub\adminscripts\adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/<site identifier>/SecureBindings ":443:<host header>"
and then from there you have to figure out how to get the site identifier.
Thankfully I found a very good article on this site that explains how to get the site identifier and a little bit more.
After getting the site identifier its pretty straight forward from there.
Charting and graphing with Php
I think the simplest solution is with Libchart. Libchart offers the opportunity to do simple line and bar graphs and also pie charts.
Its good to see that the library is constantly being updated and the latest changes have been to fully support PHP 5.
Another package I had a quick look at is Image_Graph. Image_Graph has more graphs but I think its more suitable for those people who already use PEAR or who are prepared to install the PEAR package.
PHPGraphLib is another easy to use, PHP-based graphing library and it can display up to three datasets on each graph.
Another free graphing solution is Graidle . Here the charts are generated using PHP 4.
According to its website, PHP Graph creates a simple dynamic Php bar graph from session data and that graph can be customised.
