Cannot Connect to Configuration Database

I have a working MOSS2007 web application on a particular server, using a database on a second server in the same domain. This uses the default SSL port 443.

I've created a new web application using the same database server and same authentication settings as the above using the port 9443, and applied the SSL certificate. When I load this URL I get the error "Cannot connect to the configuration database".

What am I missing?

Cannont connect to config db normally means your entire farm isn't working. Are you sure any site is working correctly? If so can you send the ULS logs from the site that isn't working after you try connecting?

Make sure your SQL Server (Backend) service are running and up. Connect to the SQL server check the DB is online.
