SSL Cert being hijacked by my own sites
I have multiple sites on a linux server.
I have one custom built PHP CMS that has an SSL Cert. (Site A)
I have a few Joomla sites that do not have or need SSL.
At least two of the Joomla sites (Sites B & C) are showing up in google with strange results.
The google result is taking the domain name of Site B or C, and cross-breeding it with the path/folder/file/query after the domain from Site A.
It is producing a URL that shouldn't actually exist. The page it loads is from Site A, even though the domain in the URL is from Site B or C.
AND, it's doing it as https -- secure. Sites B & C do not have any https secure pages.
Before actually going to the page though, an Untrusted Cert warning appears.
It's difficult to explain, I hope I'm making sense.
I'm muddling through the Joomla admin turning off all SSL functions that I can find.
It doesn't seem to matter.
Any ideas what I can do to resolve this?
Thanks for any feedback!Pandora can't go back into the box - he only comes out.

It appears that Site A is the master account and Sites B & C are "addon" domains which enable access via Site A's subdirectories.
The simple way around this problem is to add mod_rewrite code to Site A which redirects the subdirectory requests (to Sites B & C) to their fully qualified domains, i.e.,
# BEFORE your custom CMS mod_rewrite code and after your RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^subdirectoryB/(.*)$ http://www.SiteB/$1 [R=301,L] RewriteRule ^subdirectoryC/(.*)$ http://www.SiteC/$1 [R=301,L]
There are problems within the Apache board so I included this simple mod_rewrite code here rather than there.
