Title: DIY .Mac on shared server?
Post by: Gavin on August 09, 2006, 11:06:27 AM
Is it possible to implement the DIY .Mac on a shared server, such as DreamHost (dreamhost.com) without a static IP? They do have WebDAV and shell access.

Thanks.

You'll have a bugger of a time since you won't be able to get SSL working correctly without IPs. You really need two IPs, one for www.mac.com and one for idisk.mac.com and SSL certs to match each hostname. You may be able to play with a wildcard SSL *.mac.com cert and get that working with NameVirtualHost for SSL but I'd expect some type of errors.

Not really.  See my post: http://www.tnpi.biz/support/forums/index.php/topic,657.0.html
This works, with one IP and no issues.
