There's no way to tell based on the provided information. When the syslog is so non-specific, it usually means it's a very basic error (syntax, missing directive, etc.), so it can't even be started. We need to see the details of the configuration to make progress.

Can you give me some help? thanks

Keys and Certificates need to contain actual key/certificate data in PEM format, not a reference to a filename.
