Wierd page not found/DNS error when using SSL

Here is a problem I have been having since I setup SSL:

I wrote a simple php script that posts to a file in the same folder as it is in. Sometime, however, when you click submit, you get the \"Page not found / DNS error\" in internet explorer. The page is obviously there, and the server/ip exists because the previous page was on the same ip! When you click reload, it loads the page fine....I cant figure it out for the life of me.

Example: https://secure.domain.com/test.php posts to https://secure.domain.com/done.php

But when you click submit in test.php, it says it cant find the server, then you reload and up pops done.php just like it originally should have. I have had many people try it and about 75% get this same error the first time they view it also.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

It\'s a input output error crap IE blows up and doesn\'t know how to support SSL the way it is supposed to. I fixed mine. .... here you go..just like this.

#IE patch
SetEnvIf User-Agent \".*MSIE.*\" \\
nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown \\
downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0


Put that sucker in your httpd.conf and restart it.

It\'s drastic but it forces IE into SSL1.0 because IE6 isn\'t smart enough so it must stay and play with the 1st graders. :)

Merry Christmas.. this one only took me a year to fix.
