    Bought a new SSL and somewere down the line I did something wrong. Apache crashed and now fails to start.
    I have searched and tried the different options but without any luck.

    Setup is multiserver
    Server is running Debian Lenny

    I have checked the vhost file for the domain that I was adding SSL for and no lines could be found related to SSL or 443.

    One fault I may have done is that I already had one domain on that IP with SSL running and was working.

    I wnated to have SSL with wildcard on another domain.
    Hope someone can help me as all domains are offline right now.

    Best Regards

    /var/log/apache2/error.log will tell you the reason why. "apache2ctl configtest" will also tell you.

    I have checked the /var/var/apache2/error.log and nothing in this one is posted when I try to restart apache.

    web:~# /etc/init.d/apache2 start
    Starting web server: apache2[Mon Feb 25 08:46:03 2013] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts
    And if I do apache2ctl configtest :
    web:~# apache2ctl configtest
    [Mon Feb 25 08:50:01 2013] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts
    Syntax OK
    The error with NameVirtualHost has been there since I installed the server and it has been working fine until lat night when I added the SSL to one of the domains.

    Solved the part with apache not starting.
    Didn't think that the domain with ssl that was working could be a problem. After I removed these apache could start.

    But now my problem is that the vhost file doesn't get the SSL part added again. I have tried "Delete certificate" and remove the tick mark from SSL inside ISPConfig panel. Added the SSL tick mark again and "Create certificate" but when I check the vhost SSL part is not added.

    I have checked on ther server and cert files are created in the ssl folder for the domain.
