 Hi, I've got the following problem

I have apache2+php backend server serving both static and dynamic pages
and nginx+fastcgi frontent server also serving both static and dynamic
there are some location which the nginx server proxies to apache2
For non SSL connections all proxying both dynamic and static works fine.
But for SSL connections only static pages are proxied correctly, and for
pages it takes server minutes to load a page or it fails completly.

 I've verified that both apache & nginx server same ssl sipher suite.

 Here is my proxy config:
proxy_redirect     off;
proxy_set_header   Host             $host;
proxy_set_header   X-Real-IP        $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header   X-Forwarded-For  $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

client_max_body_size       10m;
client_body_buffer_size    128k;

proxy_connect_timeout      90;
proxy_send_timeout         90;
proxy_read_timeout         90;

proxy_buffer_size          4k;
proxy_buffers              4 32k;
proxy_busy_buffers_size    64k;
proxy_temp_file_write_size 64k;

 I'm wondering if i also need to pass some SSL headers too
with proxy_pass_header?

 Or the problem might be somewhere else?
