I didn't notice you were using such an old version.  The command I
quoted works in 2.x.

For your version, you need to use the other technique I mentioned
(killing the process listed in the pid file).  If you open up
apachectl in an editor, you'll note that this is exactly what it is
doing.  But it has a hard-coded path to the config file for your first
server.  You could easily edit apachectl to make a "stop2" option
which would get the pid from the appropriate file for the second

This is, by the way, documented at
