XF 1.3 Running Xenforo over SSL

I haven't added any certificates to the server as of yet.
I think you answered your own question

You need to configure your apache or nginx to listen on port 443 for your domain, with secure set as on. As it appears right now, your web server is only listening for regular, not https connections. After that you need to install the certificate.

The .htaccess step is usually the last step to do, first you have it running as both 80 and 443, then you switch it to redirect to https always
ah I see thank you. I have also added 'Listen 443' to Apache now so will the site be completely inaccessible until I have installed the SSL Certs?
