What is the response of :

#telnet localhost 443
 ?

Was your setup working well before or is it a fresh setup?

but it should not restart. Have you checked the /var/log/messages for any errors?

I think i have found the solution for my problem. As I know for Apache https OpenSSL library has to be installed. Apache has been installed with OpenSSL 0.9.8h version but in the system OpenSSL version was 0.9.8g and i think this was the reason of  hanging https connections on Apache. During OpenSSL installation i had to choose if dlls copy to Windows folder or to OpenSSL installation folder. Ssleay32.dll and libeay32.ddl in OpenSSL folder and in Windows folder was different and i think that this also meight couse the problem.
