SSL Certificate showing on all sites.

I installed a couple of self-signed SSL certificates following a tutorial on DO. They are working fine but there are other sites on the same droplet that do not have SSL certificates assigned to them. If you visit one of these site via https:// you get the browser warning and when you click on technical details it says the certificate is issued for one of the sites I set up an SSL cert for. How can I set it up so that the default is no SSL for sites that don’t have a cert? What have I set up incorrectly that the first cert installed on the server is showing for all domains on the server?

The droplet is Ubuntu 12.04

This is the only thing in the .htaccess of the site that is showing up as the SSL cert on every other site on the server:

BEGIN WordPress

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /index.php [L] </IfModule>

END WordPress

I’m completely stumped!

I wonder if you put something in the .htaccess of the SSL site that will redirect https for the other domains.

I did have mod_rewrite enabled as I have a bunch of Wordpress sites on this server. But when I added the rule above it didn’t change anything. I checked to make sure that the site in question had

<Directory /var/www/>
		Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
		AllowOverride all
		Order allow,deny
		allow from all

in the VH and it does. Also checked to make sure that AllOverride All was in the default-ssl, and it was. But the rewrite rule is not redirecting to http. What could I be missing?

Thanks for the suggestions.
