I have two MAGENTO 1.7 websites example.com and test.example.com. On test.example.com I do extension testing prior to live publishing on example.com. The problem is when I go to SETTING--> CONFIGURATION-->WEB---> change Secured and Unsecure Base url to https://test.example.com... my test site automatically redirect to original https://example.com website.

Basically I cannot turn on HTTPS on test website.... However I can use test website without SSL/ https, using standard HTTTP, such as http://test.example.com

I have wildcard ssl on example.com

Any suggestions how to turn on SSL on Test website?
