You'll definitely want to change your mpm settings to fix that

You'll want to use https on https servers and http on http servers.
Check your httpd.conf for the LoadModule stuff and SSLEngine directives

Nothing here thats not a local httpd.conf setup issue. You might get 
better help on users at with help with the specifics of 
these issues.
