SSL Certificate on Load Balancer

load balancingssl

I have a load balancer in front of multiple websites, one of which needs an SSL certificate. When I install the SSL certs for that one site on the load balancer, it breaks the HTTPS protocol for all the other sites.

How can I get SSL for this site without disrupting HTTPS for the other sites? Can I just get an SSL cert for the whole load balancer? The URLs are different and do not share top level domains.

Thanks in advance!

Depending on the website(s) behind the load balancer, it sounds like you might need a wildcard cert for * , or something similar if all URLs behind the balancer share a common URL.

You could also generate a cert for one of the specific sites with something like Lets Encrypt.
