Web Server Fails to Start [Port 443 not enabled]

A recent OS Security update to a FileMaker 13 Server MacPro machine running Mac OS X 10.8.5 (12F45) seems to have shut down port 443.


Even though WPE is on, the Web Server does not enable. Choosing either PHP or XML option to enable them .. shows the option enable is selected, but the Web Server does not enable.


NetStat testing on port 443 shows nothing. It is not open and no other program is using it. Other ports are also closed: 9090 and beyond.


The server machine has been restarted three times [ideas from earlier posts on how to activate the port], but this does not enable it. In fact, even though Auto Start of both FMS and WPE is enabled, WPE does not auto start.


I think this might have a java issue, but am not sure. Java is version 7 Update 71 (build 1.70_71-b14). We were using MirrorSync to sync a single db on a remote iPad, but this syncing is now disabled. When the MirrorSync jnlp is run, the screen cannot draw itself correctly, constantly flutters whenever an icon requires imaging. This fluttering also occurs in a Finder window whenever a preview of an icon is required.


Remote login to the AdminConsole from another computer on the network is not possible, nor is uploading of FileMaker files. All other server aspects of server work as they should. Login to AdminConsole on the server is possible by entering localhost, not the IP address of the server.


I appreciate suggestions on how to enable the web publishing engine and open port 443.
