Thank you John for your reply.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I am assuming the certificate is installed --
it was working before, and I can still see that under my
/usr/local/apache/conf/, there are directories such as ssl.crt, ssl.key,
etc. There are files like srever.crt and other .crt files. Can't I just keep
and use them? But for the server.xml, I don't see anything that's SSL
related. Maybe this is what I need to do something about. 

Sorry about this kind of quesion. I just want to get the old stuff working
for now and come back later to obsorb it.

Thank you again for your help.

Well, I'll suggest you to check 
Then you'll be able to create a certificate with your information
in it (Manual is very clear 1->2->3). After that you can download JSSE 
( (?))
and add couple of lines into server.xml file under tomcat (Also manual 
Change port to 443, and it's ready to go. But, you may need to buy 
certificate for the future... I don't know any free tools to 
generate a certificate, so browser will not prompt you about 
or that it's not trusted...
Hope it helps a bit.
