Hello Peter/Michael

I have fixed it by renaming ssl_scache.dir and ssl_scache.pag in /usr/local/apache/logs/ . It seems to be related with ssl in the server. Could you please let me know the exact use of the files in cPanel environment?.

Thanks
Sreeni

Those are the SSL session cache files. It's likely those files contained corrupt data. Removing or emptying those files typically resolves the issue.

Thank you.
