CentOS HA and SSL

Hi,
I am currently running an intranet on two HTTP CentOS servers acting in HA, sharing one IP address and using Heartbeat for fail-over.
I am looking to convert HTTP to HTTPS using SSL and self-signed certificates.
SSL and HA independently work, but apparently not together: the Apache server does not start on SSL with the shared IP. set, as it is cannot bind to that IP:443.
What is available out there as Fail over on SSL on a CentOS environment?
Thanks

How can apache bind to an IP if the IP is not available when apache starts..
Maybe you need to configure apache to listen on 0.0.0.0 then it can accept ANY address that happens to be live. Also the failover address.

It doesn't start on SSL with shared ip, does it start on HTTP with shared ip? I would think they should work same way?
