    When anyone tries to access any of the https:// url's hosted on one of my servers they just get DNS error!

    Is this happening to everyone?

    Any suggestions on where to start looking?

    This seems totally out of the random... to my knowledge nothing has changed on this server in a while.

    WHM 9.1.0 cPanel 9.1.0-R85
    RedHat 7.2 - WHM X v2.1.2

    Update: It turns out that for some reason, mod_ssl was no longer on this server!?! What the heck? This server serves up tens of thousands of hits on it's SSL pages every day and for some reason it dissappeared this evening? What's going on? Any ideas?

    Check this out:

    The command: /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

    Returns the following:
    /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl: line 192: 27845 File size limit exceeded$HTTPD -DSSL
    /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

    SOLUTION

    Evidently cpanel puts the SSL log file in: /var/log/ instead of with the other log files /usr/local/apache/domlogs and from some reason it DOES NOT rotate that log file... so there it was. A big stinkin 2 gig log file sitting in /var/log... shesh.

    It'd like to thank everyone that watched this little drama unfold... lol

    I'm glad you got it figured out, and it's always nice to include the solution for future cases. :)
