To redirect unsecure web traffic from port 80 to 443: In <apache directory>/conf/httpd.conf change the "Listen" directive from 80 to 443.

Note: This will not enable SSL on your server, to enable SSL, you need to follow the instructions here:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/ssl/ssl_howto.html

Good luck!

some versions of apache come ready-to-go with SSL, before you go changing things, try this:

# apachectl startssl

Then at least you'll be able to see what would stop apache from doing it. One thing is that you have to have compiled it with

$ ./configure --enable-ssl

or something like that, it's in the README. You can check with

$ cd [apache modules dir]

$ ls | grep mod_ssl.so

if the file is there, you're in business.
