I am not a linux expert, but I have some knowledge from my experience in creating a local server to be used for my development purposes.
I have followed the instructions on this page: ServerWorld: Configure SSL to create the SSL key and to configure the ssl.conf. However, after following all the instructions, I restarted my httpd service... but it fails.
I don't get any error message... so I wasn't sure how to look for the error or fix it.
I am doing this on my newly created virtual Fedora 15 (64 bit) server machine.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Difficult to say without any error.
Open a terminal and issue the command tail -f /var/log/messages In another terminal attempt to start apache and see if you get any logging activity in the first terminal
Also check your httpd.conf file for syntax problems: httpd -t -c httpd.conf
Let us know how you make out

Thanks mdur for your reply,
I forgot to post back here, but I solved the problem. I also forgot what the exact problem was... but as far as I remember, I had something wrong in the configuration files... and it was so weird that I didn't get any error on the command line once I try to startup httpd.
I didn't know there is such a command that checks httpd.conf... do you know if there is something similar that checks ssl.conf?
