My azure website is working fine with http. Now, I have added a self-signed certificate and a binding in IIS 7. When I run the application with https, I get certificate error warning. When I confirm 'run anyway'. Then I get 'http service 503 unavailable' continuously only with https. My binding is correct(because I am seeing certificate error first time). No log found in IIS log files. Tried, IIS Failed-request tracing, no log found. I have confirm that iis user can register both port 80 and 443(using netsh). Any idea?

Edit: The site is now working if I use specific IP in binding. But when I chnage this to 'All Unassigned' I got the same error? why?

Do you have another site in IIS? – Shane Madden May 21 '12 at 22:43
@ShaneMadden, I have also checked with just one 1 running site – user960567 May 22 '12 at 3:10

I've seen that before and the short answer is that you can only bind an SSL to a single IP and port that cannot be shared.
