Well, if it's an "intranet" type thing.......hmmm.

I would consider using one Apache thing with an Alias for everyone's
webroot. This way you run one Apache and get in via:

http://www.example.com/jane/ etc. Obviously far easier to update
Apache etc. There are (many) other solutions. If you have a lot of
users (>50 or so?) then writing an Alias for each one would be
undesirable, but I'm sure someone here could suggest something
similar.

HTH.
