I am completely lost on this one so I'm hoping someone here may have experienced it before.
I have a RoR application running with passenger in apache. It sits on EC2 and is load balanced using ELB.
We're dealing with a problem where SSL traffic intermittently fails, as in what appears to be a timeout. The browser eventually stop trying to pull the page and you get a message saying no content was sent.
I've verified the certs match between the load balancer and the server. I also have checked permissions on the various configs and certs on the server. I've been able to recreate the issue with only 1 box in the LB so I know it isn't a difference in configuration (one server works the other doesn't hence it being intermittent.)
The apache and rails logs don't convey really anything helpful (that I can tell).
So all that said, has anyone seen something like this before and have any idea what I could try next?
Oh it might be worth noting, we don't ssl secure every page, just sensitive ones like /sign_in and /subscribe.
