Apache ignoring ssl config

I have a centos 7 server running apache.

All of a sudden the site is not configured using the ssl certificate.

It is using the locahost certificate and thus making the site insecure.

I have checked my apache config (below) and all looks fine.

This one really does have me stumped as it was working fine.

The only error i can see is
[Mon Jul 18 10:56:15.299743 2016] [ssl:warn] [pid 1377] AH01909: RSA certificate configured for domain.com:443 does NOT include an ID which matches the server name

Check that the certificates are copied ok to /etc/pki/tls/certs and the permissions are set to allow read from the system.

You can view the certificate file to see if it is the correct one and that is has not expired.

e.g.
openssl x509 -in /etc/pki/tls/certs/domain.com.crt -inform pem -noout -text

checked all that and its fine.

For some reason it seems to be taking the config from the ssl.conf file rather than the httpd.conf file.

I have altered the ssl to include the sites certs and its working now but i dont know why a server that hasnt been touch would have changed its setup.

ssl.conf was taking precedence over httpd.conf

Added ssl to ssl.conf and all started working.
