This script allows you to run multiple apache2 instances. It works 
like profiles in /etc/rc.d/jail.

How install it:

1. fetch the script from:
   and put it in ${PORTSDIR}/www/apache2/files.
2. install the script:
   # cp ${PREFIX}/etc/rc.d/apache2.sh ${PREFIX}/etc/rc.d/apache2.sh.old 
   # cd ${PORTSDIR}/www/apache2/
   # make install-startup-script 
3. Configure your apache2
   <you should be able to do it by yourself ;o)>
4. Configure rc.conf
   - set your profiles :
   apache2_profiles="apache1 apache2"
   - define your configuration files
   All apache2*_* variables can be overridden. It looks like:
   apache2*_${profile_name}_*. apache2_${profile_name}_enable is set 
   to "YES" by default.
5. Dealing with profiles:
   ${PREFIX}/etc/rc.d/apache2.sh <action> [profile]
   If no profile is defined, action is performed on all profiles.

- When using profiles, PidFile directive is OVERRIDDEN.
- script doesn't exit on error. Please share your opinion about 
  default behavior.
- apache2_${profile_name}_configfile is mandatory
