1. Showing this error message on restarting the service:

The error is saying the CA which signed your new cert is either unknown or untrusted. Trusted CA's must be in the NSS database which is being referenced, which in this case I believe is /etc/httpd/alias.

By default we don't add other root CA's to this database so you'll have to add it. To see what is in the database do this:

sudo certutil -d /etc/httpd/alias -L -h internal

FWIW the "-h internal" means to also examine any preloaded CA's that may have been added with modutil.

If CA the signed your cert is one of the standard trusted ones you can add the entire set of trusted CA's with modutil

% sudo modutil -add ca_certs -libfile libnssckbi.so -dbdir /etc/httpd/alias

But that's a big hammer, you might be better off just manually just adding the CA that signed your cert and adding trust for it. Examples can be found here:
