I'd like to run OS X Server, but not the website portion of it, as I'm using something else for that.

I'm trying to run SiriProxy, which must run on port 443, but that is currently in use even though web services are turned off. When I visit, I get the "web service is currently turned off" message.

How do I completely turn off web services and allow another process to listen on 443?

  • What services are green when you use the server app to look at all running services? – bmike Jun 23 '13 at 11:48
  • I'm running Time Machine, DNS, VPN, Caching and File Sharing – Alfo Jun 23 '13 at 12:33
  • I'll be able to test later today, but that list is pretty clean. My guess would be caching uses SSL web for updates. – bmike Jun 23 '13 at 15:29

Check your httpd.conf file in /private/etc/apache2/ and see if you have the line:

listen 443

If it's there, comment out by prepending the line with '#'

# listen 443

The restart your server service.
