Apache 2.2 and Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS)

Update: apparently (I haven't tested it yet), Apache 2.2.26 finally supports ECDH cipher suites! The remainder of this blog post is not as usable any more and you can simply use some common SSLCipherSuite lines.

Using modern Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) cipher suites with #Apache 2.2 and #OpenSSL is not really possible in the general case. The best you can do is enable some DHE suites instead of the faster #ECDHE variants - for those you will need Apache 2.4.
