Apache https questions

If you saw my other thread, you'll know I'm doing the front end webserver as IIS. I'm not a linux or Apache guy so… Reading through the https Apache info, am I correct that:

Https is only configured in Apache?
You only load the cert to Apache?
You don't have to enable 8443 in nuxeo/tomcat?
Where the documentation says: 'RequestHeader append nuxeo-virtual-host “https://myDomainName/“' this is done in Apache?

I think this is it. Hopefully will help lead to a solution. Currently the cert is installed in IIS and bound to 443. Have the {http_host} configured and https:// works, but once you log in the internal paths are written as http as opposed to https and the browsers are complaining about loading unsecured content, since a full https rewrite isn't happening yet…

This is correct, Apache is the https endpoint then is reverse-proxying to nuxeo in http on the localhost interface. (it does not have to be done that way, but that is what we found was the simplest).

Thanks. Went through lots of files, configs, etc. only to realize all that needed to be done in IIS was to replace {HTTP_HOST} in the url rewrite, with my https://websitename.org and it worked.

Pretty easy once it's no longer clear as mud.

Thanks again.
