Solved WAMP Apache won't start with SSL

After quite some time trying to get SSL to work, I found what was holding me up.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with WAMP 2.2a x64. What I encountered, after trying to strip all excess directives and ensuring that port 443 was not in use, was that any time I tried to listen on port 443, the server would not start at all and there would be no entries in the event viewer or the error log. I also disabled my firewall to make sure that was not the issue.

What I found was that even though the apache server was happy to "Listen 80", it does not like "Listen 443".

It will, however accept:

Listen 80
Listen https

Note that using just "Listen 443 https" did not work,so it required the ip address.

Hopefully this may help someone else encountering a similar problem.
