    My DC was able to hard-reboot my server, and I can now SSH and use WHM, but apache still refuses to start. Here's the tail of the error log when I try to restart apache:

    WHM is destroying my httpd.conf file when I try to add an SSL certificate. It erases the ENTIRE file except for the SSL information it's adding?! I've found reports of this exact thing happening since as far back as June 04. Is this being worked on?

    I just restored my httpd.conf file to an older one and tried to reinstall the SSL certificate and once again WHM is deleting everything in the httpd.conf file except what it adds for the SSL. Can I just restore the httpd.conf file and cut-and-paste what WHM is trying to add onto the end of it for SSL?

    Probably - then run httpd configtest before restarting Apache.

    It is rather difficult to throw ideas on the table about possible fixes to your problem. It seems that Apache is not configured properly, or system files got corrupted causing this problem. Have you tried re-building Apache? Do you have fresh RPM packages that are not corrupted?

    If you don't know how, you might do more damage to your server. I suggest you hire a sys admin to look into this problem.
