The bad config file will cause errors in the apache error log:
ParsingException in IniFile.cpp:130: Illegal line "# This is the Apache server
configuration file providing suPHP support.."

EPEL-4 has reached end of life and is no longer supported. 

Please retest your bug against EPEL-5 or EPEL-6 and re-open if the bug persists in the packages available in those releases, or file a new bug.
