move shared server to dedicated IP

I know I have done this before, but I just cant find it. The "automaticness" of vmin is great but hard to tell it to use dedicated ip. Seems like its a dedicated IP only if you select SSL as an option when creating the vserver? I tried to add SSL to the vserver I am working on but it says only one shared host can have SSL....

THE PROBLEM: I made a virtual server on a shared IP and setup the site and all the backend stuff only to remember that they need to be on a dedicated IP.

QUESTION: How do I move it to a dedicated IP? I have a range setup in the template for use and they are available.....

Well, first, you can associate an IP with a specific Virtual Server by going into Edit Virtual Server, and setting the "Virtual Interface" within "Configurable settings".

I don't recall whether or not that automatically moves all that Virtual Server's existing IP's over to the new IP or not.

If it doesn't, you would solve that by going into Addresses and Networking -> Change IP Address, and have it update the IP for just that one Virtual Server.

CRUD... Now its somehow added SSL to the site and I am getting a firefox ssl stupid security warning. SSL is not checked in the
"Enabled features".. How do I turn it off???

Hmm Hmm. Um OK I figured it out. Not that clear but clear enough if I found it.

For those wondering:
- edit vserver
- configurable options
- Create now with allocated IP

It doesnt give you the option to tell it what IP to use but I guess thats what computers are for, to keep track of things for you.

Well, I caught your initial post right when I walked in the door from a late night movie showing -- but at that point it was way late here on the east coast, so I was in bed shortly after ;-)

Anyhow, now that I'm up again -- even if you wanted SSL to be enabled, there shouldn't be a case where by default, Firefox redirects to it.

So I'm really surprised to hear that your having a problem with your site along those lines.

Are you able to go to the non-SSL version of the site? It should be the difference of using "http" versus "https".

If your site shares an IP with an SSL-enabled site, then going to would load an invalid SSL certificate.

Just drop the "s" in "https" and you should be good to go!
