ssl_stapling_init_cert: no responder URL

My apache error log shows a large number of SSL Stapling errors after a Graceful restart:

Graceful restart requested, doing restart
ssl_stapling_init_cert: no responder URL
I did google SSL Stapling but didn't find much information. I have just upgraded the server and I have never encountered this error. The https:// pages are secure but I don't understand what this error signifies and whether it is causing page failures for my customers? I am running CENTOS 6.5 x86_64, Apache 2.4.7 with PHP 5.5.8.

Any ideas?

Hello :)

That case was determined to be the result of another internal case (#78477) that has since been resolved. Case number 78477 dealt with SSL certificate installations failing to add the CA bundle to the userdata store. A resolution for this case was included with cPanel version

Feel free to open a support ticket using the link in my signature if you want us to take a closer look at your specific error message. You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

Thank you.
