but, I can't start Apache when I turn on this setting.

<VirtualHost *:443>
 ServerName www.example.com
 <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteRule ^/(.*)?$ https://example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Is there anything in the error log? –  toppledwagon Apr 12 '13 at 2:48
What error messages are you getting when you try to start apache. What OS are you on? –  Krist van Besien Apr 12 '13 at 11:23
It probably does not have a Listen *:443 definition. –  Marcel Apr 15 '13 at 21:54
