How to disable HTTP port in Oracle Apps R12.1 when SSL is enabled

If we have SSL enabled in our Oracle Apps/EBS then the web service/HTTP server would be listening on the HTTPS port. In this scenario, we can disable the HTTP services for security reasons. It is not mandatory but a good practice.


1) Make a custom folder in FND top, if not already present.

 mkdir -p $FND_TOP/admin/template/custom

2) Navigate to custom folder.

cd $FND_TOP/admin/template/custom

3) Copy the http configuration template

cp ../httpd_conf_1013.tmp .

4) Update the custom file by commenting out the following line:
Listen %s_http_listen_parameter%

5) Run autoconfig and restart services to verify. Now the connection to HTTP port will not work.
