Question apache and https?

I have a problem.
I want to host my linux server with apache.
I have my site built, and in the htdocs.
My ISP stated they block any incoming traffic on port 80.
They stated I need to use https on a secure port.
does anyone know of this?
Is this a software?
I'm assuming it is a secure protocal similar to ssh, but for webhosting.
(1) how do I set apache up to listen on this port?
(2) What port is this?

just change the port from 80 to 8080. apache will do that. its in the .conf file. install webmin and you can edit it directly from there instead of digging though the apache tree. sorry dont know enough yet about the tree to tell you exactly what to edit.

https is 115 or something like that, but again that will be in the same .conf file as i mentioned above.

Edit httpd.conf, uncomment #Listen 3000,
change 3000 to 443
Alternatively, hunt down Port 80 and change that
to the 443

(2) What port is this?
See above :)
