Setting a SSL on a new virtual host

Hi, I have FC13, apache 2.2.15, it seems that during setup, I have a default certificate created assigned to port 443 for localhost.
I have created a new virtual host which I can access over internet using port 81 as follows
which works fine. I need to allow ssl on this new VH. I know how to create a certificate but what is confusing me is how to configure this, what I need to change in the config file, how to tell the certificate to work on port other than 443 used by the default VH listening on port 80.
I would appreciate any doc with instructions to follow.
Thanks in advance

You need to change a couple of things to use SSL on a different port than 443. I'm not using fedora, but from the documentation I've found, if you want to change the https port to 444 for example, you'll need:
Listen 444
NameVirtualHost *:444
and for the SSL-vhost, something like:
<VirtualHost *:444>
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl/server.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl/server.key
