if u comment the lines

in your ssl.conf file, everytime you start your server it will
automatically start support for ssl, so there's no need for
apachectl startssl

the problem is that in the log folder in apache2, theres no log file
for ssl, so i think apache is not starting ssl support

/usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl -t
Syntax OK

i didnt know this one, its very useful, thanks a lot!!!...
