Apache 2.0.63: not listening on 443

I need some help.. I copied the ssl.conf and httpd.conf from an existing server, X. this new server is supposed to be a duplicate of X. They are on Solaris 10.
Somehow, I cannot get it to listen on 443. This is most frustrating. How do I troubleshoot it?

Also, if I want to make Apache listen on SSL only, is there a way? I am redirecting all port 80 traffic to 443 now.

Is there something else already listening on port 443?  Any errors either in Sun's logs or apache's logs?

You can follow the directions at:

to force port 80 traffic to port 443.

Yup, I was already redirecting port 80 traffic. But i wanted to close port 80 totally. Only listen on 443.
Can this be done?

I dont seem to find any tell tale signs... is there a way to check if the packaged Apache comes with SSL support?

Where did you get the package?  I fairly sure that most packages of Apache to day for any *nix platform comes with SSL support compiled in already.

To have apache not listen on port 80 in httpd.conf code listen 443 only.  Don't code listen 80.

The apache came pre-installed with the Solaris 10.

All else works fine, until I enable the "Redirect permanent" to 443.

I forgot to add, SSL has been enabled on ssl.conf (LISTEN 443), but when I do a netstat -an, I realised that it 443 is not listening
