I looked in the following 2 directories for clues to domain issues:
There are only 3 domains on this server. The DNS server itself (ns1.mydomain.com) and 2 other domains. When creating new domains I was get the following error in the domain vhost files:
# Apache did not start after modifying this vhost file.
# Please check file /etc/httpd/conf/sites-available/domain2.com.vhost.err for syntax errors.

Tried restarting apache with errors for port 80 & 443 initially and also now there is no more https security now for the main site. Apache is screwed.
I get the following warning error restarting apache currently:
Starting httpd: [Mon Apr 21 07:41:30 2014] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:443 has no VirtualHosts
There are no more .vhost errors.
