    Question SSL stoped working

    My SSL server stoped working today and I don't know why.

    It was working yesterday.

    I checked the logs and nothing special there.

    Can somebody tell me what else I have to do and check to make it work?

    Thanks in advance

    What logs did you check? The apache error log or SSL log? It depends what you use for SSL, but Apache with mod_ssl will default to putting SSL logs in the apache log directory with names ssl_engine_log and ssl_request_log.

    Run ps -aux

    check your apache process. Do they have -DSSL switch?

    If not, try

    /etc/init.d/httpd stop
    /etc/init.d/httpd start

    Expired SSL will still run but just issue a warning to the browser.

    It was an apache issue. I don't know how, but the DocumentRoot was pointing to directory other from the one I had before.

    Thank you guys for technical support

    Need some coffee ...

    DocumentRoot? that's a configuration in httpd.conf. Is it for a particular virtual domain or for the whole server?

    Another simple way is just to reinstall the SSL cert.
