Subject Re: [users@httpd] mod_proxy slow response - Apache/2.0.52

I'm using the same Apache2 version, from, and I'm getting
the same (very) slow response times. Here's my config:

<IfDefine SSL>


        ServerAdmin cows
        DocumentRoot DOCROOT

        SSLProxyEngine on
        SSLProxyMachineCertificateFile CERTPATH
        SSLProxyVerify optional_no_ca

        SSLEngine on
        SSLCertificateFile CERTPATH
        SSLCertificateKeyFile KEYPATH
	RequestHeader set front-end-https on

        SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown

        ProxyPass /

        <Location />
                Order allow,deny
                Allow from all
                ProxyPassReverse /



It's a bit messy because I'm just try to hack around the config to make
it faster, but nothing I do seems to do the trick.

Perhaps this is a config issue, but I can't find any decent
documentation on using SSLProxy anywhere :(

I'd appreciate anyone who has SSLProxy working well pasting a sample
config in here - that could help.

For the meantime I'm going to switch back to pound on this host (almost
instantaneous), but I'd really prefer to use Apache - mostly because it
doesn't occasionally crash like Pound.
