You can not use https with namebased virtual hosts.  This is clearly
documented on the apache.org web site.  For SSL, you must use IP-based
virtual hosts since the name is encrypted - you can't set up the session
until you know the name, and you don't know the name until you know
decrypt the headers.  The key you need to decrypt is virtual-host

You're dead.  You simply can't use https with named-based virtual hosts.
