There are a few caveats that may not be obvious to everyone so I am going to cover them here but keep this in mind before starting.
#1) When you specify your SSL certificate with a full path, it really needs to exist where you tell it to (including the default location of /etc/ssl/certs and /etc/ssl/certs/private).
Also note to make a cert there is a quick shell script in /etc/ssl/certs called "make-dummy-cert" that you can run to make the cert.........
503 Service Unavailable (Failed to connect to endpoint: [N7Vmacore4Http20NamedPipeServiceSpecE:0x00005556ba09c070] _serverNamespace = / action = Allow _pipeName =/var/run/vmware/vpxd-webserver-pipe)
503 Service Unavailable (Failed to connect to endpoint: [N7Vmacore4Http16LocalServiceSpecE:0x00007fd26000b240] _serverNamespace = /ui action = Allow _port = 5090)
Errors like the above are usually because there is an issue with your vSphere or more commonly it i........
[root@thetor2017 conf]# service httpd restart
Stopping httpd: [ OK ]

Some of the cheaper or newer SSL suppliers will require this to work properly (otherwise you may be prompted that the cert is invalid when it's not the case but it will certainly scare off your users!).
In the Apache vhost conf for the domain here is what you add:
Here is a full example of an SSL Vhost config in Apache using a CA Certificate file
There are a few ways of doing this and all basically involve using the reverse proxy or "ProxyPass" feature of Apache to accomplish it.
1.) Create a normal vhost and simply symlink the root directory of the site you want to mirror.
Eg. originalsite.com and newsite.com
You would symlink like this:
ln -s /vhosts/originalsite.com/httpdocs vhosts/originalsite.com/........
