SSL and domain setup


#1

From the Wiki I think I understand how to get SSL running. The questions I have are more about the file-level settings that may be required.

I currently have 2 domains that are related: staff.example.com, and www.example.com. If I also created secure.example.com as a domain for use with SSL - can it be setup under the same SSH/(s)FTP user as the other two domains? (Realistically, I’d like to be able to share files beneath the webroot between the domains.)

Visually:
/user/
/user/shared_libs
/user/example.com
/user/staff.example.com
/user/secure.example.com

So, I’d like to be able to allow all 3 domains access to the shared_libs folder without any penalties.

Also, I didn’t see this anywhere, but accessing the domain that is setup with SSL… Do I NEED to connect to it using SFTP, or can I connect via standard FTP (most likely I’d use SFTP, but I am just curious).

They say, “Practice makes perfect,” yet they also say, “Nobody’s perfect”. I don’t get it.

Setting it up in this manner is in fact possible.
One may connect via FTP (and not SFTP), though it would be fool-hardy to do so.
