have you checked the unix rights of certificate database files ?
cert8.db + key3.db
Please, take a look at the "note" in 7.4.1 here:
Thanks and regards,

Subject: [389-users] Netscape Portable Runtime error after adding temporary certs
I am running into an issue with adding temporary trusted certs to 389
directory server running on redhat 6.6.
I have been following this guide step by step to install self-signed certs:
After generating the certs using certutil, and adding them as trusted certs
in 389, I check the enable ssl checkbox in the 389 directory console.
I continue to follow the next steps until I reset the dirsrv service. The
dirsrv service will not restart. Error message (notice I changed the secure
port to 1636 this time but get same results leaving it as 636):
[10/Jul/2015:08:35:23 -0600] - slapd started. Listening on All Interfaces

Do any of you have any ideas of what is causing this issue or what I may be
doing wrong? If you need more information please do not hesitate to ask.
