How to run a apache server which would listen on both port 80 and 443

I would like to configure a apache server which would listen on both the port 80 and 443 and and later I can rewrite or redirect all the port 80 request to port 443 for HTTPS protocol communications

Usually when you install mod_ssl it goes on to listen on :443

so If I install mod_ssl then web server will automatically listen on both the port number, 80 & 443?

If you use system's package manager (like apt or yum) it happens instantly (well - after server reload)
If not - scan apache .conf files for number 443

sorry, I still did not get it. I am assuming I can put "Listen 80" in main configuration and in the <VirtualHost> block I can define 443? so this way my apache instance will listen on both port 80 and 443?

it is usually called ssl.conf or mod_ssl.conf
You need to have SSLEngine enabled in virtual hosts on that port.
