Maybe he knows something you don't... How are people accessing your 
URLs? what will the rewrite do? Will something that is https _ever_ have 
to go through apache for some URL rewriting? If so, then for sure apache 
would have to need a certificate installed as well. I don't see why you 
couldn't install it on both, but they both couldn't listen on the same 
port on the same IP address. That is for sure.
