SBS 2008 default website conflicting with SBS Web applications

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I have a Windows SBS 2008 Server. I cannot get the default website to start while the SBS web applications site is running. When I try to start the default website it says another site may be using the same port. They both are using port 80 and 443 but port 443 is causing the issue. I tried to edit the bindings on either site and add a host name but it is grayed out on both for port 443.

If I try to change port 443 on either site it says "the certificate associated with this binding is also assigned to another sites binding. Editing this binding will cause HTTPS binding of the other site to be unusable"

In the system log there is an error with event ID 1007 for IIS W3SVC

The World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW Service) did not register the URL prefix https://*:443/ for site 3. The necessary network binding may already be in use. The site has been disabled. The data field contains the error number.

How can I get both of these sites running at the same time?
