SSL certificate for both Filemaker Server and WebServer

Imagine this setup:

- A domain  "mydomain.com"

- Behind the firewall a web server (192.168.0.4) and a separate Filemaker Server (192.168.0.5) with WebDirect

- They both use internally the same ports (80, 443)

- To connect from the outside to the regular web server, everything is standard. The router redirects 80 and 443 to the web server (192.168.0.4) on the same ports

- To connect from the outside with WebDirect you use for example 8080 (http) and 8081 (https) which the router redirects to the Filemaker Server (192.168.0.5) on ports 80 and 443.

 

I think this is a very standard setup.

 

Now my question: can a SSL certificate created for Filemaker also be used for the regular web server?

Don't think so because I guess the server requests will be different (one created by Filemaker Server and one created by Apache). But it is the same domain "mydomain.com". Do you have to buy a second certificate for the same domain/different server?

 

Can someone recommend some literature "for dummies" about this subject?
