I have a site using a wildcard dns. Looking to set up ssl I was going to purchase a wildcard ssl cert. Looking on the dreamhost wiki and talking with support it sounds like a wildcard cert will not work even if installed manually. Can anyone explain a little more on what dreamhost is doing that a manually installed cert for a wildcard dns hosted site would not work?
I did not want to fully host each of these subdomains because I just wanted the one set of code to handle it all. But, it sounds like that is the only way they can get an ssl cert.
Any info on this topic would be great
