Hi, I have configured my IBM HTTP Server for SSL, and added the alias for port 443 in the virtual host alias for Websphere for the application I am running. When I run my application using the http port (80) the server runs fine. But when I run the application using the HTTPS port (443) the server becomes slow and shows that the process "appache.exe" uses almost 100% of the CPU. Apart from being slow, there are no issues with the application. All functionalities work properly. My Web Server (IBM HTTP Server)and the Websphere Application Server (v3.5 AE) are running on the same maching (Windows 2000). All suggestions in resolving this are welcome. Thanks.
