So I don't know what happened but I made a self-signed certificate and I got it to run successfully by typing in https://mydomain.com here. The problem is that when I try to use a Certificate Authority supplied certificate by comodo. It dosn't want to work. Apache2 restart [fail]'s but no errors really.

I have repeated the step in this tutorial:
https://support.comodo.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=881&nav=0,1,84

as well as this one on a different occasion
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/ssl/ssl_faq.html#keyscerts

I think the part I have most trouble is why there are so many files, and why do they need some many places to put them.
I've been able to take my csr(i think thats which file type im talking about) output and copy/paste that into the comodo interface so they supply me a certificate or .crt file.
Then i take the certs and just stick them in a root only access folder in this case /root but I've also tried /etc/apache2/ssl same results. I also might think it could be im not doing virtual hosts config correct somehow with the SSL file linking. (This server hosts another website that wont require SSL so i'm pretty sure virtual hosts is a must)
Beyond that I have no clue what to do. i just get the normal messages from apache2 and then it just displays [fail]
