Cannot connect to my cold fusion server using https:// ONLY http://

I have a confusing problem with trying to connect to my Secure Server.
I have everything completed  to allow SSL connections (only) installed on my Apache web server 2.0.
My OS is Red Hat Linux ES Server. (https://myservername.com)
My secure site is running fine I can conect using https:// only. When I use http:// cannont connect  directly to my web server web site name. (I will be directed to a page in my html directory that I have set to instruct users to use https:// on the secure server to connect.

Problem is.
I cannot connect to my coldfusion server pages using https:// only http://
If I try:
https:/www.myservername:8500/CFIDE/administrator
I cannot connect to my cold fusion server.
If I try:
http://www.myservername:8500/administrator
I will connect just fine.
When I add:
Listen 0.0.0.0:8500
to my ssl.conf file I get an error message when I restart Apache stating that
Apache cannot bind to port 8500.
Can someone help me solve this problem.
I do configure apache2.0 with a SSL module in the conf.d directory.

Thank you in Advance.

There was a bug in CF administrator on https but there is also an update for this problem:

Hello Mause:
I think my problem is with finding a way for Apache 2.0 SSL to accept connections on port 8500.
The way I have it configured now it will only accept connections on port 443.
I don't know how to get the server to accept connections on another port.
Thank you in advance for any ideas you have.

I don't know how to configure Apache for ssl on port 8500
You can find some documentation about Apache ssl here:
http://www.apache-ssl.org/docs.html

Or you can ask your question in the Apache section:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Servers/Apache/
I think they know more about this then I do

Hello Again Mause:
I don't think my problem has anything to do with Apache.
When I stop Apache I still can only connect to my coldfusionmx server with http://wwwmysite.com:8500/CFIDE (etc.)
My issue must be with having coldfusionmx accept a SSL connection.
Thank you again in advance!

What webserver do you use then?
Did you also installed the Coldfusion webserver?

Why using buildin webserver if you already have apache running?

The settings of this buildin server are saved in yourcfdir/runtime/servers/default/server-inf/jrun.xml
But I never configured the buildin server to use ssl.

there is a section
<!-- This is the built-in JRun Web Server                               -->

where you need to uncomment the last past to enable ssl

I have not been able to implement the connector to use Apache with coldfusionmx. I am a bit lost in how to
go about this. I have tgried to use the apxs utility but have not been able to actually compile a module.

I cannot find any documentation on exactly what to uncomment to allow the jrun.xml file to allow
SSl conmections from apache.
Can you shen any light on this.
Thank you in advance.
