Https not working properly with Apache and Load Balancer
We are running a web server with Apache 2.0.63 (non SSL) and using a Cisco Load Balancer. We have SSL setup on the LB. When we go to the https url, it hits Apache fine and then goes to weblogic. Once the request comes back, it comes back as http not https. We want the URL to stay https the whole way without having to use SSL on the apache or weblogic servers. Is there a setting I need to change with Apache to make this work? Any help is appreciated. Load Balancer (SSL) -> Apache (no SSL) -> Weblogic 11g (no SSL).

So it redirects to an http:// page? Then there's your problem: it redirects.

Everything underneath the load balancer only uses http. Once it comes back through the load balancer it needs to be https to the client.

Right... But the only way that happens is if the client gets a response telling it to redirect someplace.
And a clear definition of "comes back" would be helpful.
