Not a long time ago I was requested to create a new sharepoint web app to host our new portal. Because this portal would be (at the time) our only web app running in this farm and because the boss told me to, i used the port 80.
We use the domain xpto.com
Now the boss wants to create a "employee-only" web site for colaboration at "portal.xpto.com". This new site have to use HTTPS.
To do it I created a new web application at port 80 using the host header portal.xpto.com and checked the "https" box. Everything went fine with the web app and the site collection creation.
When i browsed "Https:// portal.xpto.com" (pls igone the extra space) I ended up being redirected to "http:// xpto.com". So i went to the host IIS and saw that my new website was sttoped. When I hit "start" the site wont go up saying that port 80 is already being used. Isn't host header supposed to managed this?!? what should I do?
