I have a wildcard SSL certificate for one of my sites. So, it offers SSL happiness for all the subdomains of *.example.com
The site is currently on a VPS with about twenty other sites I own.
I'm working on migrating them all to a new server.
Back when the support crew at my current host set up the wildcard domain, they said that for it I'd need a dedicated IP. OK so mote it be. Now it's on a dedicated IP, and that's never a bad thing.
They also explained that to make it work, they had to create a new Linux User for it. So while all my other sites are hosted in /home/myusername/public_html/*, this one site with the wildcard is hosted in /home/example.com/public_html
Was that really necessary?
I mean, since I'm setting up this new server, do I need to do the same thing?
