I think SNI has been introduced for mod_ssl into newer packages, (i.e.
in the testing/unstable repos) but running a mixed debian system could
be troublesome in a production enviroment. I haven't tried mod_ssl
because of that. I don't know if this issue is caused by my mod_gnutls
config or if it's an error on my apache config. Am i supposed to
declare a corresponding https virtual host for every plain http one?
