comment Apache SSL works but the config shows it's only listening on 80 not 443, how is it possible?
Apache has to start as root to bind to privileged (<1024) ports. It then drops privs to apache and runs as that user, so while I've never looked as lsof in this instance, I'm not entirely surprised to see root there.

comment Setting up a private server for Windows and Mac Computers
You need to hire someone now. Seriously, find a good systems administrator, and let them figure out how to get you what you want. Don't start down a path and then hire someone to fix it - that will be more work and headache than anyone wants to deal with.

comment Risk of starting NTP on database server?
@JonathanJ - NTP has difficulty correcting time skews greater than 5 minutes, and when set up per "standard" documentstion (of which there are several sets, admittedly) first syncs the time in one jump then maintains sync by adjusting drift.
