SSL Broken- End of my rope

Ok, I've searched all over the forum for most of this day without success. I tried to install a .crt and .key for a domain with a dedicated IP and it broke https for all of my domains.

I tried killing stunnel and then restarting cpanel with no luck. I added my version of stunnel to the stopstunnel script in /usr/local/cpanel/etc/init, ran that script and then restarted cpanel. But https stil won't work for any of my domains.

[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel/etc/init]# less stopstunnel 

sub killstunnel {
        system("/scripts/ckillall -9 stunnel");
        system("/scripts/ckillall -9 stunnel-3.22local");
        system("/scripts/ckillall -9 stunnel-4.00local");
        system("/scripts/ckillall -9 stunnel-4.02local");
        system("/scripts/ckillall -9 stunnel-4.04local");
        system("/scripts/ckillall -9 stunnel-4.05local");
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel/etc/init]# service cpanel restart

The fix for this was to comment out the CAbundles for the domains and then restart httpd with ssl via /scripts/restartsrv_httpd.

Never had a problem with that until today but that worked. If you set up a new domain, only put in the .crt and .key and you shouldn't have any problems. I hope this helps someone.
