SSL changes web page performance

I have a Windows 2003 web server.  I have two URL's set up in IIS to point to the same folder, so the web sites are identical except for one has SSL applied.   Other than that, IIS is set up identically for both.
http://csiportals.com/calendar pulls up the correct page and http://cassarasystems.com/calendar does not - it first acts like it's a download, then you open it with a browser and it's all errors.
I'm assuming it's the SSL, but what can I do?  FB requires an SSL on Apps in another week and this has to work.

From where I'm standing, in both cases the SSL certificate isn't valid for the site's URL:

https://csiportals.com/calendar/calApp.php

https://cassarasystems.com/calendar

In any case, since you're not using SSL for the second link in your post (you're using HTTP, not HTTPS), I suspect there is in fact something wrong with the page.

It is valid - I just have it set up on port 446, so https://cassarasystems.com:446 is valid.
How can it be valid for one site and not the other when they point to the exact same code?

Well for me, the broken link doesn't render as HTML, it just comes across as "Calendar".  Also, the broken link has PHP inline that I don't see when I pull down the working page and the <input> tags are different.  So I'm forced to guess either the preprocessor for the second site isn't configured properly or there's something wrong with that PHP.  I don't know enough about LAMP to be authoritative in either case.

Well, you would have never gotten it from what I told you but I did not have php set up under mappings for the one that wouldn't work, which you had me look for it, so thanks!!!!
