Hi, i have an sbs08 server that we use RWW on. I have a godaddy certificate. Alls been working fine for a year.
I rebooted the server the other day and now my default website in iis7 doesn't start. it says
the website cannot be started. another website maybe using the same port.

I did a netstat -a, which i have attached as a log.
We use https, port 443 for the rww. I can see that sbs08 is using port 80 and 443, but don't understand where this is in iis.

In SBS08, RWW runs under the "SBS Web Apps" site, not the default site.
As such, in the IIS snap-in, you can right-click on a site and view its bindings. The default site should *not* be bound to port 443. If it is, remove that binding. Then the SBS Web Apps site will start properly.
This is a common problem. There is a patch that resets the bindings to defaults under certain very specific circumstaionces, but of course in SBS the defaults are not the same, thus things break.

in fact, installing sp2 for exchange on sbs2008 is one of the things that resets the https bind port - it's burried in the "read this first" article :)
