ok ... finally got it sorted. Turns out CA sent me the wrong instructions AND newlines were not cutting and pasting properly (i think they were mangled by email client) when pasting the cert into ispconfig field. Using vi to add the new lines in the cert manually allow apache to start.
How do i get changes i make to the
/etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf file to be permanent, this file seems to be recreated every time a new site is added.
i would like to add the following line to Vhosts_ispconfig.conf when ssl is used for a site:
anyone know how to do this?
