    Here we are on a new server that was delivered yesterday I am migrating from another server.

    Before installing the ssl certificate I could restart httpd in whm.

    I installed the ssl certificate and httpd failed to restart.

    The message I got:

    httpd status
    root 8345 0.7 1.7 18356 17020 ? S 19:52 0:00 /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr ./reshttpd


    httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

    I now can no longer restart httpd in whm as it fails.

    Does anyone know why?

    This is the error that I received in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

    [error] mod_ssl: Init: (www.domain.com:443) Unable to configure verify locations for client authentication

    Wow after hours of digging I finally found the solution thanks to a post by rajanichand

    Here what I did in httpd.conf

    I commented out the SSLCACertificateFile line

    restart httpd in whm

    and it worked.
