    Hi There;
    I'm not sure what happened - but apache hunt and then when i tried to restart it, it fails. it complains about an ssl certificate but i do not have one. I was however trying to figure out how to create the file needed to request one from a provider. the last few lines of the apache error log file is attached.
    Please help!

    Probably something went wrong with the creation of the self signed ssl certificate that you attempted and this blocks apache now. Try to go to the folder /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ and delete the file which contains the domain name in the filename of the site where you attempted to create that certificate, then restart apache. If it works now, try to disable the ssl checkbox of that site in ispconfig and save, this should enable the site again without https.
