get a apache 500 error and redirects to domain.com/public after changing SSL cipher

Hi,

I tried to update or change the SSL cipher in my WHM. But after the update my main home pages are being redirected to the wrong url. The home pages and other pages now are no longer working. But sub-directories are working. For instance, when I go to:
http://myultratrust.com it forwards me to:

myultratrust.com/public

And testthis.myultratrust.com forwards me to
http://testthis.myultratrust.com/public

It shouldn't be doing that. Don't know what WHM does in the back but it shouldn't be messing around with the folders of a site because of an SSL configuration change. I tried to change things back but WHM doesn't fix it back to the original state. I'm disliking WHM more because I have no idea what it does in the background. :(

This page properly gets forwarded though:

https://secure.myultratrust.com/ to
https://secure.myultratrust.com/diy/login/login.php

And this site works properly still:
http://emailmarketingservicesco.com/ (it's supposed to be a blank page)

I checked in my httpd.conf settings and I have this:

<VirtualHost 173.201.47.54:80>
    ServerName myultratrust.com
    ServerAlias 47.201.173.in-addr.arpa www.47.201.173.in-addr.arpa www.myultratrust.com

I don't see anything wrong with that config. Anyone know what happened?

I figured it out. Thank the Lord. Was really stressful.

For some reason when I went to the Apache Configuration->Global configuration and changed the SSL Cipher I had to rebuild the Apache conf. But what WHM did was add this line on some (not all the FQDNs):

Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2_2/myultrat/*.conf"

Creating a backup vhost.conf and appended /public/ directory as the Document Root to what was previously:
DocumentRoot /home/myultrat/public_html/testthis

In other words, that line became
DocumentRoot /home/myultrat/public_html/testthis/public

Strange. Or perhaps that was there before. Whatever the case, the WHM Apache added to some of the FQDN's this line:
Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2_2/myultrat/*.conf"

So I change some of my vhost and created a default for the domains that were affected by adding the line:
Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2_2/myultrat/myultratrust.com/*.conf"

So now I have this on some of the FQDNs:

<VirtualHost 173.201.47.54:80>
    ServerName myultratrust.com
    ServerAlias 47.201.173.in-addr.arpa www.47.201.173.in-addr.arpa www.myultratrust.com
    DocumentRoot /home/myultrat/public_html
