https gives me cannot find server error

Hello, I dont know if anyone can help me here but I will ask anyways. All of a sudden today my [secure.mysite.com...] gives me a "cannot find server" error. It has been working fine for a year now since I bought the server and today I am getting that error. I use apache webserver. Everything else is working fine like [myserver.com...] and [myserver.com:10000...] to login to webmin. I've tried restarting apache webserver, i've restarted my entire server, I went through httpd.conf to see if 2 ips were using ssl and that isn't happening. I don't know what else to try.

I have Apache/2.0.50 (Fedora)
(Redhat Linux Fedora 1) Version 1.180

If anyone could give me some ideas of what to look for to fix this that would be great. As I said before it has been working fine for a year and I haven't changed anything on the server for months now so it is kind of wierd that something would just stop working for no apparent reason.

Thank You!

Check the following:
  1. Does the hostname works well (is there a reply to ping requests)? Does it resolved to the correct ip address (which is configured on your server and in apache)?
  2. Does it work without ssl?
  3. Does it work using the ip address? (eg []
  4. Check the server logs (error and access); is there any new entry happening in those when you try the url in your browser?
