In what situation would I need to use or implement an HTTP debugger or analyzer in an environment. Where can I find more reading information on HTTP/HTTPS?

Here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertext_Transfer_Protocol is a quick overview of HTTP Hypertext Transfer Protocol.  HTTP 'debugger' is usually called a network analyzer.  I use Wireshark http://www.wireshark.org/ for general purpose and Fiddler for viewing HTTP headers in request and responses.  Firefox also has an add-on called LiveHTTP Headers that I use to see what is going on in web pages.

You use these tools to find out what is being sent and received in the request and response headers associated with a web page.
