Hi,
We are managing our SSL certificates at the Load Balancer Level (Cisco ACE).
How do I configure apache to use that SSL certificates.

I have never done this before and appreciate help from experts.


Thanks,
Mohit

Short answer: don't configure apache for ssl the LB will take care of it

Longer answer follows

Leave that to the load balancer.

User ------ LB ------- Apache

User ------ LB is cripted and the certificate is managed by the LB
LB -------- Apache is in clear

With this kind of solution ( offload ssl) the cpu of the webserver is fully used to elborate web pages and not to encrypt as this is done by the ace

If you need to use  client authentication with certificates that's another story, a moe complicated one
