http works fine, https returns error after backup restoration, apache recompile


Oct 17, 2007
I'm running WHM 11.2.0 cPanel 11.11.0-S16999 on FEDORA 6 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0
Configured for Apache/1.3.39.

I have this same configuration on two separate boxes, one managed, the other unmanaged.

I haven't nailed it down completely to the triggering event; the latest was a full backup restoration on a new server. One prior to this was a recompile of apache with some mods added.

Both went smoothly enough, except when you navigate to, it returns this error in Firefox: has sent an incorrect or unexpected message. Error code -12263

IE simply displays the default "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" page.

One of our hosting providers on a managed server fixed it for us, telling us that one of the directives didn't get closed out. I'm assuming this was in httpd.conf, tho I wasn't the one talking to him, so I didn't grill him about the specifics. Anyone else had this problem? Any second opinions before I go mucking around?

Thanks in advance.
