No Joy.... I'm beginning to wonder if I've got Apache setup all wrong.

The fist line before the directives appears this way:


I'm not specifying a port as such:  NameVirtualHost

Should I be doing this so that it sees a difference between SSL and 
non-SSL virtual hosts? Since adding the container for the https side of 
the domain for interchange and upon restarting apache I wasn't prompted 
for my passphrase for the certs that are installed, which tells me that 
its not acting on the certs at all now, although it didn't complain 
about me specifying two different ports for the same domain as it was 
doing before.  *sigh* I'm wondering if I'll ever get this right.
