Port 9080

I have configured HTTP SERVER to SSL. But while I try to access through https://medtest/
It is telling File Not Found. But when I access through http://medtest:9080/ the application is working fine. Are both the invocations same in terms of security ??. what is the significance of the port number here?. I have to make it work with https://medtest/ Am I missing something ??
When I give https it is searching for files in /htdocs while it should search in .ear directory.
Somewhere I read if i add
AddModule mod_app_server_http.c to httpd.conf it will work ... But after this HTTP server is itself not starting. Please help me out...Iam a newbie to websphere.

when you are typing the url without a port, it will take u to default port ...8080 or 80. either you need to configure websphere to listen on the default port(8080) or you may need to redirect all the request on default port to port 9080.

port 9080 is the default internal webserver provided with the app server for testing purposes.... just check ur plugin-cfg.xml for entries made with respect to SSL.
i believe that those entries were made wrt the 9080 port .
u could check that out..

I also have the same problem.
I've got two instances of 9080 in my plugin-cfg.xml file:
VirtualHostGroup Name="default_host"
VirtualHost Name="*:80"
VirtualHost Name="*:9080"
ServerGroup Name="weblog2/Default Server"
Server CloneID="tljqhh5s" Name="Default Server"
Transport Hostname="weblog2" Port="9080" Protocol="http"
Which of these do I need to change in order that requests on port 80 will be routed to Websphere?
Also, if I have static content on the Web Server then presumably these will be served in preference to routing to webpshere if the request is on port 80?
Presumably after any changes I'll need to regenerate the webserver plugin?
