Pretty self-explanatory. Is there any way I can make Apache stop listening in port 443 (Https). So that it only listens on port 80 (http)?

I'm working on a Windows 7 PC.

Edit 1: I installed Apache with XAMPP. So i don't know how it came pre-configured.

Solution: There is a file in "\apache\conf\extra" called http-ssl.conf that had a command saying "Listen 443" (line 20). Just change it, delete it, or add a # before it to solve the issue.

How do you know it currently listens to 443? – Robert Jan 3 '12 at 22:10
I know it is currently listening on 443 because i can see it listed with cmd.exe "netstat -a -b" – Sosavpm Jan 3 '12 at 22:27

Unless there's a "listen 443" statement in the .conf someplace... it will not listen on port 443.
