Apache Failing to Start after Accidentally Deleting CRT, ca-bundle and .key

Last Modified: 2013-11-08
Unfortunately I made a big mistake today after trying to complete an easy task on my WHM server. I deleted my sites .crt, .key and ca-bundle files causing Apache to fail, and all of my sites to go down. With my technician unavailable until tomorrow, I'm stuck with a downed site and only my minimal technical knowledge to correct it, so any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Anyways here is where I'm at, I re-created my .key and .crt file using the following method: http://www.akadia.com/services/ssh_t...rtificate.html

However now when I try and start Apache I get this error:

service httpd restart
[Wed Apr 14 18:54:58 2010] [error] VirtualHost xx.x.227.xxx:0 -- mixing * ports and non-* ports with a NameVirtualHost address is not supported, proceeding with undefined results
[Wed Apr 14 18:54:58 2010] [warn] NameVirtualHost xx.x.227.xxx:80 has no VirtualHosts
[Wed Apr 14 18:54:58 2010] [warn] NameVirtualHost xx.x.227.xxx:80 has no VirtualHosts
[Wed Apr 14 18:54:58 2010] [warn] NameVirtualHost xx.x.227.xxx:80 has no VirtualHosts
httpd not running, trying to start

I'm really unsure what to do, any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Also I should post the results of: service httpd status
