Symantec endpoint protection manager cannot login - AV defs not going out

Hi,
since returning from a nice long holiday I have just found out that no AV definitions have been updated on clients since July and trying to login to SEPM throws me out with failed to connect' error message. Trying to restart  the service just drops out after a minute.
I found this message in the catalina.out file:

And searching on this I found this old post (PM, ID: 23515545) which had an accepted solution of "root default website had ssl enabled".
What does this mean and how to fix it? what default website? where is this set?
 Im not a sysmantec gure - its just meant to be an av package to help avoid system problems, not a major headache of the viral type in itself!

thanks for any assistance please...

adendum:
I have looked at various symantec forum options, tried reinstalling/repairing sepm but doesnt help - the configuration stage has problems connecting to database.
So, looking at possible corrupt database, I ran the Database Validation tool and got this error - it seems can never access the database? (trying to startup SYM embedded database servers drops out ' nothing to do' server message

output from db validation:
