The nginx is the frontend.
My main apache web server has 3 vhosts.
vhost1 and vhost2 have the same ssl certif when vhost3 has a different one.
I have add on my reverse proxy nginx the ssl_certificate and ssl_certificate_key (same as my apache config) but how to deal with the third ssl certif who is different from the two first one ?
Is it possible to split them ?
