Thanks everyone's help.  It is working now.  Yuppie.
You are right, I should not start the server manually.  I needed to start another script.

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.
