    Ok, I have three seperate servers with a great managed company and they can't even figure this out.

    In the past month SSL has stopped working on each of my three servers a combined two dozen times. Everything can be fine and SSL doesn't work for hours until I manually reset it:

    service httpd sslstart

    My provider says cpanel has no way to recognize if only SSL is down. But this is happening to 3 different servers so something must be wrong.

    Anyone ever heard of this and is there any way for Apache or Cpanel to make sure SSL stays up?

    thanks!

    I would look for the obvious (it has happened on my servers on occasion) it was duplicate SSL entries in httpd.conf for the same domain

    not much of an provider
    its easy to add https to chkservd

    nano -w /usr/local/cpanel/src/chkservd/chkserv.d/https

    and add the following to it ALL ONE LINE

    service[https]=443,GET / HTTP/2.0;killall -TERM httpd;sleep 2;killall -9 httpd;/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop;/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd startssl;/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl startssl




    then
    nano /etc/chkserv.d/chkservd.conf

    add the following to it

    https:1


    service chkservd restart
