OK, here's what I finally did and I think it has corrected my problem.
In the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file, after:
I added this one line:
SSLCertificateChainFile /the path to the file/www_tidesmarine_com.ca-bundle
and removed it from where I manually had placed it in the Vhosts file and I do not get any complaints from IE, Firefox or Opera after restarting ispconfig_server.
If I don't get any complaints after the VHosts file gets rewritten by ISPCONFIG, then I am golden.
Thanks to ALL for your help... This is an ongoing learning experience as I am coming from Windows....
