Presuming you fixed the first problem and added the valid
SSLSessionCache directive, and those warnings no longer show up,
there's not a lot we can tell you from what you've reported.
Note that FC5 is antique, a dinosaur, and nobody should be
running it anymore on an outward facing server.

You might check if there are more than one ErrorLog that the
startup failure messages might be going to.  You should be
trying to start the server manually (it certainly seems like
you are).  Try dropping the -k start presuming this is on
unix, and try using the httpdctl, apachectl, or apache2ctl
script command instead to ensure that all the system settings
and environment variables triggered by that script are invoked.
(I don't know your install, so I can't tell you the name of your
script, but it probably resides in /opt/csvn/bin/).  httpd
is usually the executable, not the start script.

Finally, since there isn't much to go on, you might want to
try asking for some assistance on, #httpd
channel, since there are likely to be a bunch of iterations
of asking you for enough details to work out what might be
going on with your install.
