Enabling SSL - No access to manager, admin, or rest services anymore

I had a typical ArcGIS Server 10.1 install on my local machine that worked without issues.

Today I went into manager to enable HTTPS so that I could begin testing out security configuration for our application.  After enabling HTTPS using a self signed certificate, I am no longer able to access anything in ArcGIS server.

https://machinename:6443/arcgis/admin, (and /arcgis/manager, /arcgis/rest) all return "The connection was reset".

The original :6080 sites redirect to the 6443 sites.  Web adapter is not installed.

Looking in:
C:\arcgisserver\logs\machinename\server\ at the latest logfile I find a file full of these entries:
<Msg time="2013-04-16T11:21:46,66" type="WARNING" code="7709" source="Admin" process="1336" thread="1" methodName="" machine="machinename" user="" elapsed="">The Web Server was found to be stopped when it should have been started. Restarting it.</Msg>

I suspect I must have setup the self signed certificate incorrectly and need to redo that step, but I am unable to access manager anymore to do so.  Is there anyway to reset the server configuration back to non-ssl manually without access to manager?  Or will I be stuck uninstalling and reinstalling?  (In hindsight I should have left both http and https access enabled initially until I knew https was working...)
