I'm using nginx, currently hosting several WordPress sites. I'm thinking about consolidating them all into one multisite network so I don't need to pay for a bunch of Wordfence premium licenses (psst, don't tell). However, I had a question about ssl certificates from let's encrypt:
First of all, currently I have separate certificates with http://www.example.com and example.com on them, which makes sense as each of my sites is in a separate vhost. However, if I make them into one multisite network, I think I see a few problems:
1. If I use domain mapping, I can't have ssl certs that are just for my main multisite domain, as they won't be valid for that mapped domain (I'm trying not to have to reissue the cert every time I add a new domain).
2. If I redirect the domains to mysite.com/site1/xxx, then that wouldn't look very professional. Do you know of any way to have separate letsencrypt certificates for each domain, yet still have one vhost and subdirectory installs without having to redirect them to an ugly looking URL? or do I need to duplicate my multisite configuration in the main vhost an put it in each separate site's vhost as well, there by making them practically identical? As you can tell I'm a little confused.
If you need any more info just let me know! ????
