This file is a lock file used by the SSL Engine to keep various
operations on the session cache synchronised. The mutex file gets
redefined after each apache restart so don't edit it yourself (the
number at the end is the process id of the apache parent).

To be able to use the file, the apache user (defined by "User") has to
be able to write in the log directory (/usr/local/apache/logs) - can it?
Check the owner and permissions of the log dir and compare them with the
properties of the apache user.
