On the mirror, you need the appropriate Apache modules and
Make sure you have mod_proxy and mod_ssl loaded as well as the normal
Subversion modules.

The proxy-specific config I've used is:

<VirtualHost ...>
  SSLProxyEngine on
  SSLProxyCACertificateFile /some/local/path/master_cert.pem
  SSLProxyVerify require
  SSLProxyVerifyDepth 10

  <Location /svn>
    ... standard SVN config omitted ...
    SVNMasterURI https://masterserver.mysite.example/svn

The path /some/local/path/master_cert.pem should contain the SSL
certificate for your master SVN server. To create it, I just browsed to
the master SVN server using a web browser and saved the SSL certificate
to a file. (In Firefox: Navigate to SSL page, click padlock in
bottom-right corner of browser, "View Certificate", "Details",
