today I edited some vhosts in my Apache installation and when I tried to restart it I got this error:

[Sun Jun 08 15:20:19 2014] [error] Init: Private key not found

I have tried to generate new self signed certificates issuing this command: openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout server.cert.key -out server.cert.crt but the error still exists. The private key chmod is 600, and if I open it with nano looks, fine.

I'm running Apache2 on a debian 7 machine.

What changes did you make to the vhosts? Please post the actual vhost config. Also, you should chmod the key 0400 –  Joe Sniderman Jul 29 at 6:45
