If your site does not need a HTTP connection, follow these steps to reconfigure Apache.

To configure the Apache web server to accept HTTPS connections

  1. Access the appropriate directory for your operating system:
    • (Windows) \pw\Apache\conf
    • (Solaris or Linux) /usr/pw/apache/conf
  2. Save a copy of the httpd.conf file.
  3. Edit the httpd.conf file to comment out the 'Listen 80' line, so the line reads as '#Listen 80'.
  4. Restart httpd by running the following command:

    pw process restart httpd


Switching Apache server from HTTP to HTTPS mode requires restarting the system. BMC recommends due diligence before restarting the system.
