Let's clarify what's happening: all that I'm trying is only to set the 
Web Server to work with SSL. And, as far as the documentation is 
concerned, it's necessary to configure a VirtualHost to listen on Port 
443, so you can establish a secure connection. But using the VirtualHost 
directive, Apache can't start and the following error message is given:
[warn] VirtualHost www.myDomain:443 overlaps with VirtualHost 
www.myDomain:443, the first has precedence, perhaps you need a 
NameVirtualHost directive

But I only use the VirtualHost directive once! At least in the http.conf 
it's made once, is there somewhere else where the VirtualHost is defined 
besides the httpd.conf file?
