Try to connect via https (ie. type the same URL as usual, just use https).
If it works, you're done.

Otherwise check

- if https is enabled in the server
- if the https virtual host is using the same document root
- if the documents don't enforce http

After you get it to work, decide if you want https enforced or both options enabled.
You can either enforce it through the scripts or through rewrite rules.

it appears another service is already listening on port 443.

you may need to change this port to something like 8443 ( assuming you are not using this port also )
