Hm... without the SSL session cache, clients will not be able to re- 
use their SSL sessions.  This can have a serious performance impact  
on your server.

Please put in the main server configuration the following directive:

SSLSessionCache shm:/usr/local/apache2/logs/ssl_scache(512000)
SSLSessionCacheTimeout 300

See the following documentation URL for an explanation:

That is the command apachectl executes, so you're fine there.

Looks like a fine configuration to me, but do add the session cache
