[root@www ~]#
systemctl restart httpd

[3] If you'd like to set HTTP connection to redirect to HTTPS (Always on SSL/TLS), configure each Virtualhost like follows. It's also OK to set it in [.htaccess] not in httpd.conf.
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhost.conf
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html
    ServerName www.srv.world
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
</VirtualHost>

[root@www ~]#
systemctl restart httpd

[4] If Firewalld is running, allow HTTPS service. HTTPS uses 443/TCP.
[root@www ~]#
firewall-cmd --add-service=https --permanent

success
[root@www ~]#
firewall-cmd --reload

success
[5] Verify to access to the test page from a client computer with a Web browser via HTTPS. If you set Always On SSL/TLS, access with HTTP to verify the connection is redirected to HTTPS normally, too.
