What specific problem are you having with configuring this? And why can't you just use HTTPS for both? –  Shane Madden Oct 8 '12 at 4:34
I have a scenario where majority of users will be internal users and making all of them use HTTPS will cause overhead. I successfully configured apache with HTTPS but i don't know how to go about the dual mode. –  Priyadarshini Kakade Oct 8 '12 at 5:05
What overhead will it cause? –  Shane Madden Oct 8 '12 at 5:05
Processing needed for encryption I suppose. –  Priyadarshini Kakade Oct 8 '12 at 5:08
You can disregard the overhead for HTTPS. For that to be a problem your machine would be so stressed that even HTTP would be problematic. –  John Gardeniers Oct 8 '12 at 6:31
