Most people would leave apache (usually with mod_ssl) to handle the
encryption over https. Im not even sure if you could do what I think you
are asking without controlling the whole http communication (as the whole
thing is SSL wrapped, or none of it).

I think you need to look into one of the following:

- Handling the requests yourself by listening to port 80 (not advisable -
php wasnt built for that sort of task, but its possible)
- Using ssl certificate pairs and installing them in a custom manner on
the apache installation
- Alternative methods

PS: if your not using apache, I cant help you at all. Others may.
