    I've done research over the forums about this and couldn't find anything close to what I have. Or probably I didn't look that far enough since there's a lot of it going on. I'm getting this error.

    Syntax error on line 8214 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
    SSLCertificateFile: file '/var/cpanel/ssl/cpanel/mycpanel.pem' does not exist or is empty

    I don't know how this affected Apache to have failed. I did a graceful reboot but didn't change a thing. I'm probably going to get errors when I try to restart the Apache server. Any suggestion before I do the restart?

    Thanks!

    Hey guys! I've opened a thread on the Easy Apache forum but haven't got any response yet. I was wondering if it would be faster here. So I restarted the Apache server on CPanel and it failed. I was dumb enough to have press on another option and forgot to copy and paste the log. Now the websites on the server is down because of this. Any advise on how to solve this?

    Thanks!

    Hey,

    What is the error you get when trying to start Apache ? May be you can try to restart it from the backend via SSH

    Hello :)

    You can rebuild the Apache configuration file via:

    Code:
    /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf
    Let us know if you receive any errors when running this command.

    Thank you.
