Hi Andy.
Process basically include getting/creating a certificate, define it on 
your site and reload apache.
here is a centos manual which is not exactly the same on ubuntu but 
pretty much explains the order of things

on ubuntu you will have to open the 443 port
<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
     Listen 443

once the https is ready, you can do a redirect to the https site from 
http. (with mod_rewrite)

do you have logs or any information on what is not working?
