I have got two httpd+ssl servers running - one on port 443 & the other
on another port.

They are completely seperate huilds, and issue seperate certificates
(they are test servers, so the certs are self-build ones :)

I think I remember reading something a while back about this, and there
was an implication that you could configure two vhosts to use seperate
certificates - this may have been httpd_2, and it may be a figment of my
imagination :)
