No. As one poster said (and contrary to half a dozen 'install apache'
posts), you can't do name-based multiple vhosts over ssl.

The ssl session wraps the http session, so the server can't get
the host header until the session has started.

That's some catch, that catch 443.
It's the best there is.

You should in theory be able to do it on different ports, but
I haven't tried.

I am more bored than you could ever possibly be.  Go back to work.
