I'm trying to setup like a front-end reverse proxy with Haproxy sending demands to Apache web servers within the back finish. My issue is that I've been not successful in setting it up to utilize SSL demands using Apache.

I understand that Haproxy can't handle SSL demands and so i am trying to setup Apache to simply accept the clients demands on port 443 and forward it to Haproxy that will then get and forward the demands right Apache back finish web server. Has anybody carried this out effectively? If so are you able to provide good examples from the Apache and Haproxy config please?

Yes I've please visit the configuration here link text

I personally use nginx, here's a good example nginx.conf:

server {
    listen       443;
    server_name  localhost;

    ssl                  on;
    ssl_certificate      /etc/pki/tls/certs/localhost.crt;
    ssl_certificate_key  /etc/pki/tls/private/localhost.key;

    ssl_session_timeout  5m;

    ssl_protocols  SSLv2 SSLv3 TLSv1;
    ssl_ciphers  ALL:!ADH:!EXPORT56:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM:+LOW:+SSLv2:+EXP;
    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers   on;

    location / {
        root   html;
        index  index.html index.htm;

            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
            proxy_redirect off;
            proxy_max_temp_file_size 0;


In haproxy.cfg, set:

listen http_proxy 127...1:8000
