The essential point to bear in mind when adding SSL to a webserver is;
what you're really doing is adding a port-based virtualhost (usually on
port 443) that uses an additional protocol layer (HTTPS). All you should
be doing is *adding* directives so no changes should be necessary to
existing config directives.

PHP is just a bunch of server-sided logic and so doesn't know or care
whether the protocol used to connect was HTTP or HTTPS - so I would say
it should make no difference.

Rgds,
