Using Wildcard SSL Certificate

I'm attempting to use a Wildcard SSL certificate for my domain

ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE): Can't contact LDAP server (-1)
curl gets this:
curl: (51) SSL: certificate subject name '*.mydomain.com'
does not match target host name 'myserver.ldap.mydomain.com'
Am I not able to use a wildcard SSL cert in this instance? If that
is the case, what would my best course of action be?
The problem here isn't that you're using a wildcard certificate,
it's that your wildcard certificate truly does not match your server
The "*" in a wildcard certificate does not allow you to span
subdomains.* *.mydomain.com would match for ldap.mydomain.com, but
if you add further names below that, it won't match.*
*.ldap.mydomain.com would match and probably work correctly for you,
given the hostname you are using.
