Expired domain crashed apache config



Little crash this morning. Took a while to figure out because apache would just throw a "AH00016: Configuration Failed".

Pinned it down to one of my domains that expired. And just after receiving this email, apache won't start anymore 

[Fri Jan  3 10:06:14 CET 2020] xxxxxxx.eu:Verify error:DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for xxxxxxxxx.eu
[Fri Jan  3 10:06:14 CET 2020] Please add '--debug' or '--log' to check more details.
[Fri Jan  3 10:06:14 CET 2020] See: https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh/wiki/How-to-debug-acme.sh
 * apache2: cannot `reload' as it has not been started


I've manually removed the lines in vhosts.conf about this domain, and apache starts. Now froxlor has updated my config again, and apache complains. So if you want me to check on something to pinpoint the issue, don't hesitate.

Btw: happy new year :)

Well, on one site, be sure your acme alias works, the domains DNS is set up correctly, etc. etc.

On the other side, today's release will include a check for mismatching certificate files which should help with this issue (depending on the cause)
