Check your certificate formating

Make sure there are no leading or trailing spaces in the certificate file.

Carefully ensure there are no spaces or blanks within your certificate file, by selecting the entire text and looking for blank spaces on a text-only editor.

Check Apache configuration

Check the Apache configuration file and make sure that the correct path is specified for the correct certificate file.
