    Dear support @till
    I renewed the SSL certificate today with no issues by using GeoTrust that I always use on one of the ISPConfig but now after restarting the server, I get an error status below...

    Code:
     systemctl status httpd.service
    systemctl status httpd.service
    ● httpd.service - The Apache HTTP Server
       Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)

    Other services are running e.g. amavisd, dovecot and postfix but cannot start start httpd.

    No panic. Sorted. I found that one of the .key for the SSL files was not included in the /etc/pki/tls/certs/ which provides dovecot certificates.
    Also updated the .pem CA file.

    Thank you
