Description of problem:
This is a follow up for Bug 1018172. As Joe Orton commented, "Listen X https" or simply "Listen 443" now means an implicit "SSLEngine on" for the vhost. This does not play well when the HTTPS vhost is processed with mod_ssl and httpd won't start:
[Tue Oct 15 07:19:56.815573 2013] [ssl:emerg] [pid 4757] AH02240: Server should be SSL-aware but has no certificate configured [Hint: SSLCertificateFile] ((null):0)
[Tue Oct 15 07:19:56.815594 2013] [ssl:emerg] [pid 4757] AH02312: Fatal error initialising mod_ssl, exiting.
We should be able to at least set "SSLEngine off" in the mod_nss config to avoid this error.
Our current workaround is to use "Listen 443 http".
With httpd-2.4.6-6.fc20/httpd-2.4.6-7.el7, mod_nss can add
to vhosts in the default mod_nss.conf to avoid the "Listen X http" hack
