You can get this type of error if you have SELinux enabled - check 
/var/log/message to see if there is an "avc" denial message for this 

You'll need to label the certificates correctly if you want to keep 
SELinux enabled, e.g.

 # chcon user_u:object_r:httpd_config_t /home/vh/sslsite1/server.crt



for more details about SELinux and Apache.
