mod_ssl apache Fedora - 8

I’ve run into an issue with my https web site. Last night I needed to re-boot my machine and apache refused to start with no message at all about what is wrong. (Just Apache failed to start (trying to start manually using webmin)).

After messing around for a some time I discovered that if I turned off the option SSLengine then apache starts all OK.

I’m totally baffled by this. The certificates where issued 4 months ago and have worked flawlessly since installing.

Fedora Core 8 (up to-date)

I hope no one else is experiencing issues like this but if anyone could point me in a direction to start trying to resolve this would be gratefully received!


your first indicators might be found in the log files. Possibly that would take away a lot of guessing.
