How to configure Apache 2.0 to accept SSL connections on multiple ports. (using ssl.conf module in Red Hat Linux ES)

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.(ssl.conf)
I think I need to find out how to get Apache SSL to accept connections on other ports as well
as 443.

Thank you in Advance.
