Depends upon the primary site certificate.  If it's www.xyz.com when you'll need a certificate specifically for order.xyz.com  If the certificate is a wildcard, then *.xyz.com will work for order.xyz.com.

I used a reverse proxy for all of my sites so the "main" Apache config file handles the SSL and then passes all the traffic back to the instance serving the content.  It's all dynamic but with the reverse proxy handing the traffic back, no changes are needed to the instance serving content.

site? They are as clueless as i am about this, but googling about
subdomains seems to say yes.

DCM long ago set up and has entries needed for sftp.

A second question - since subdomain site has many pages, all dynamic, has
anyone used the Apache rewrite engine so as to not fix every http reference
into https?
