The Lotus Foundation resets the redirected tcp/ip to SSL selection on the server doc, when it starts up so you can't use any http access. The only choice to host a public website in Domino is to puchase a valid SSL cert.
It would be really nice is there was a option to select either Apache or Domino control port 80.
There are a lot of web based apps that could be used by SMB out on openntf.
To support Sametime or quickr this will have to change.

Does this have to do with another application using port 80? I remember Sean Burgess telling me about this. Maybe Sean can hop in.

Yes, currently the apache server uses port 80.
I really don't want to resort to PHP to build apps. I'm having to purchase a SSL cert just to allow Domino to host web apps and nothave the unknow cert error for self certs.
I can make the home page redirect to SSL & Domino but it's a pain and it dosen't get spidered by search engines.

i agree, since the redirect to SSL option is always enabled (and set back if changed), then there is no way to do Domino w/o SSL. You can create a port forward on 80 to goto 60080 but it will always redirect to SSL. We have a cert, but most of our clients do not. However, since the main issue is webmail, the redirect of 4443 to 443, does fulfill the "main" problem of webmail access for internal users who would know (hopefully) to accept the self-cert SSL key.
