SSL Installation error -directive missing closing '>'

While installing the SSL on domain from WHM >> SSL/TLS >> Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain, the below error occured -

The “/usr/sbin/httpd” command (process 80677) reported error number 1 when it ended.
httpd_ls_bak: Syntax error on line 49909 of [Test Configuration File]: 
</VirtualHost>rdata/ssl/2_4/cPanel_username/domain_name/*.conf"> directive missing closing '>'

Solution -
This error was due </VirtualHost> was not closed in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file. I've corrected the entry and rebuild the httpd.conf file using below commands -
/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf

The previous code was as below -
</VirtualHost>rdata/ssl/2_4/cPanel_username/domain_name/*.conf">
</VirtualHost>

I've corrected the code as below -
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost> --------------------------------> added the opening for <VirtualHost>
rdata/ssl/2_4/cPanel_username/domain_name/*.conf">
</VirtualHost>

It fixed my issue!
