I fixed the path on the certificate key and restarted apache. I am copying jamie here, is there is documentation somewhere about the relationship of control panel web configuration to sites on pauline. They seem independent?

The settings on pauline are a relic of the past and I don't think we have any decent documentation.

The exceptions were made for two reasons: one, UWS is a heavy user of drupal multi-site - so many many domains share the same configuration and two, we set those exceptions up before SNI was invented - so each web site running https had to have it's own IP address.

I think we should remove these exceptions (added via the ibew.specia.conf file) and in theory we should be able to convert the big multi-site lets encrypt but in practice... I'm not sure if lets encrypt has any limits on the number of domains that can be included on a single site. Scratch that. They appears to have a 100 domains per certificate limit. So, maybe this would work? I don't think there are a hundred domain names under the hosting order are there?

If we can convert this to letsencrypt, it would mean every web site in this shared hosting order would enjoy https support, which I think would be a big gain.
