There are a few problems here:

1. The OpenBSD version of apache is not really apache anymore.  It is
a forked version with openbsd-specific changes.  So it will be
difficult for us to help you on this list, since we know only about
the real apache and we don't know anything about the openbsd changes.

2. "it doesn't work" is a very bad way to ask a question.  We need to
know exactly what you tried, and exactly what happened, including
relevant excerpts from the error log, access log, and config files.

3. Notice I said "relevant excerpts".  Please don't dump your complete
config file here and except us to sift through it looking for the
important stuff.

Sorry if this answer is not what you where looking for, but you need
to help us out a little if you want us to help you.
