I have a bit of a beginner question I hope someone can provide with a simple answer or link. I am moving some personal projects from shared hosting to VPS, and trying to learn the config/admin side of things as I go. I used to host a few flask apps on separate subdomains, and could easily run each app in the root of the subdomain. Now with the VPS, I have a free SSL certificate for the root domain, but not subdomains... So I am thinking of moving the apps to subdirectories instead of subdomains so they all can use the SSL cert. The trick is I want to run a lightweight flask blog app at the root, and dispatch other flask apps at some subdirectory under the root.
I am looking at this part of the docs: http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/0.10/patterns/appdispatch/#combining-applications
Which makes me think it is possible, even if I need to build yet ANOTHER app to dispatch the requests. Is this the best way to go, or is there some server-level config (nginx) I could do that would make this even easier?
(Sorry if this is a sort of newbie question. I come from the windows dev world and don't always know the "right" way to do things on linux.)
