Apache does not look for changes in the configuration while it is 
running, you have to explicitly tell it to read the configuration 
again by restarting it. Until Apache is properly restarted, it will 
not know anything about the changes you made.

The error message you are getting says to me that you have not 
stopped Apache when attempting to do your restart.

When you say you are restarting it, how exactly are you doing so?
