I didn't realize that PCI required HTTPS for all communications
(actually, I have a hard time believing that, since not all CC
communications even use HTTP... like over a dial-up device).

But, if you must use HTTPS, then you've going to have to abandon AJP.

The configuration posted by Vladimir is pretty much the simplest thing
you could possibly do. If you want to use a self-signed certificate
from httpd->Tomcat, you may have to make arrangements for httpd to
trust that certificate.

If you want to forward the original SSL information back to Tomcat,
you're going to have to read about the various configuration
environment variables for mod_proxy_http and set them appropriately.
