note that the default /etc/apache-ssl/httpd.conf contains this line:
which means that any broken symlink in /etc/apache-ssl causes the server
to fail to start... on top of that it means that all the files in
/etc/apache-ssl are parsed as if they're certs.
i think you should probably comment out that SSLCACertificatePath -- it's
not required in default setups... and the "SSLCertificateFile
/etc/apache-ssl/apache.pem" line does the job for single-cert servers.
i just had to use strace to debug this one myself :)
