Alright, I've been through every log file I can find and I can't seem to find any errors listed to tell me why this is happening. About every 4-5 hours I get a "connection was refused" when trying to connect to a secure site on the server. The only secure site that works fine is WHM and any non-secure connection is allowed. A simple Apache restart corrects the problem but it's back again a few hours later. Can someone offer some ideas on where I can look to get this nipped?
It could possible be your openSSL installation, try upgrade your cpanel to 'Stable' release and reinstall the openssl..also try upgrading apache to the latest release..

During my troubleshooting I updated to 10.1.0 R78 and also ran easyapache. The problem still occured after that. The problem I'm having now is I can't troubleshoot it unless it goes down and it isn't going down consistently. Not to mention I can't really keep a service down to work on it when people are using it and I know how to bring it right back up.
Originally posted by harryhood Is there anything in /var/log/messages being logged at the time that https goes down?
Ok, just went down and there is nothing listed in messages when I try to connect (no errors that is). stunnel shows it is running when I look at the output for top.
Now that I'm doing more investigating I see that my memory usage is hovering around 76%. Swap looks good but that figure is very high for this server. But even after restarting Apache the figure doesn't drop much and https works. I guess I could understand if all ssl was going down, but with the self-signed certs still working I just don't know what the deal is.

When I ran httpd configtest I got:

That line repeats 7 times all with the exact same IP address which is the server's shared IP.
I am at a standstill. One domain with a separate unique IP won't run SSL, and the above errors are generated on the shared non-unique IP.
I'd be grateful for any insight.
Sorry, I don't have the same problem when I run configtest. GL though.
