    Yesterday one of our servers started segfaulting when trying to start. We narrowed the problem down to Apache starting with SSL.

    The error we get is

    /etc/init.d/httpd: line 124: 26911 Segmentation fault $HTTPD -k start -DSSL

    We have rebuilt Apache 2 times however it has not resolved the problem. There were no changes to Apache or the SSL binaries before this issue occurred.

    Currently we modified the /etc/init.d/httpd script so that the service httpd start starts without SSL so that Apache is at least servicing non SSL sites but I do need to find a solution to the SSL not working very soon as we do have some SSL sites that need to be working.

    Looking at your post, I think I may be able to repair the issue without destroying the rest of your server in the process. Worst case, I think you may have to reinstall openssl and rebuild your SSL backend but that shouldn't be too difficult, well at least if you know what you are doing.

    I am quite busy today but I will take the time to go ahead and take a look if you can get a hold of me and will be watching my private messages.

    An alternate solution would be to force re-installs and see how that helps.

    Otherwise, I would say submit a ticket to Cpanel although I have my worries about what the solution to this particular issue might be as they are not as well versed in handling corruption issues (which is what this really sounds like in this case).

    /etc/init.d/httpd: line 124: 26911

    Bad ssl

    It could be something as simple as a bad ssl. Depending on how many you have, you can go through and comment them out to see which one is not loading correctly.
