Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to extend the Protocol when using SSL?
Date Thu, 21 Dec 2006 08:54:50 GMT
See Connection-Upgrade, but it won't solve your problem.  The upgrade request
is just that, one request; you still won't be able to add your headers.

If you are a proxy, have the app continue to create an http: request, and
do the https: request to the apache back end from your proxy.
