Apache not starting automatically at boot time

I have Linux Slackware Version, at this server Apache was working fine and starting automatically at startup time.
Due to some abnormal shutdown it stopped starting at startup time.
I did everything, checked every bit of the setting, but it is not starting at startup time.

does it start manually? There should be an rc file in /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd
what do the logs say in /var/log/httpd?

Yes it does start manually as /usr/sbin/apachectl start

and here is the log file entry
[Wed Sep 04 18:51:46 2013] [notice] Apache/2.2.13 (Unix) DAV/2 SVN/1.6.4 PHP/5.2.17 configured -- resuming normal operations

Actually I did some changes to install and configure SSL on the server since then it is not starting at boot up time.

What I is below is my original thoughts on the matter, but, first, what is the output of

 ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd
Original thoughts below:

You have two choices.

As root, make it executable on boot

cd /etc/rc.d
chmod +x rc.httpd
or add it to /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
