When replacing a certificate on a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 webserver i encountered a problem that let only one SSL site run on IIS 6 (Internet Information Services). All others were stopped and couldn’t be started.
This is normal behaviour of IIS 6 if you set multiple sites on SSL port 443 while using the Internet Information Services (IIS) Management Console.
You can set multiple sites on SSL when using IIS6 if you run a script in a command prompt. This script needs to be run from c:\inetpub\adminscripts\ .
In the command prompt you type:
cscript adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/<SiteID>/SecureBindings “:443:<URL>”
You can find the SiteID in IIS when looking at the list of websites.
Thanks go out to Robert Beal for providing this solution.
I hope this was informative for you.
