Configuring multiple SSL sites on IIS

Friday, 23rd May 2008 11:47pm
Recently I had to configure multiple https sites on IIS6 and I was using a wildcard server certificate and the problem I encountered was how to find the site identifier.

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.
