Just listening on 443 won't cut it, it does actually take a little
work to get SSL set up. Specifically, you need to create some
certificates and configure apache to use them, not to mention turning
on SSL. If you already did this, then like Eric said, you'll need to
be more specific about the behavior you're seeing.
