For server-side (Tomcat) config, yes those instructions should work though I haven’t tested
that document.  

Your server.conf will have an entry that looks something like this:

    <!-- Define a TLS Coyote HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8443 -->
           port="8443" maxThreads="200"
           scheme="https" secure="true" SSLEnabled="true"
           keystoreFile="conf/mykeystore" keystorePass="changeit"
           clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS”/>

that tells it which port to listen to, which protocol, location of keystone and its password.

The client-side has to know the new URL, the location of the truststore that contains the
public key.  Are you using the fortress-core as the test client?  If so you will need to change
some fortress properties to match the new server coordinates. 

There is a tutorial that covers some of this ground:
