Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
In JBoss Enterprise Web Server sending a request via a mod_proxy reverse proxy to a https backend results in a segfault. Using gdb shows that having the private key before the certificate in <classname>SSLProxyMachineCertificateFile</classname> triggers the segfault. This is a known issue in JBoss Enterprise Web Server 3.0 and there is currently no workaround for this problem.

Bug 52212 - SSLProxyMachineCertificateFile key first causes segfault

This is fixed in RHEL per http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-0512.html

EWS needs a fix.

It seems it require an openssl upgrade.
Comment 6 Jean-frederic Clere 2014-02-13 08:42:36 EST
It seems there is a fix in  httpd-2.2.25 for it.
Comment 9 Libor Fuka 2014-06-16 09:58:48 EDT
There is a difference in patch behaviour on MS Windows. It writes only: 
for SSL proxy (missing or encrypted private key?) 
to httpd error_log.
The log message on RHEL and Solaris:
incomplete client cert configured for SSL proxy (missing or encrypted private key?)

Do we know why is this difference ?
