Here's a sample httpd.conf that will get you started. I formerly used this
configuration to serve identical content from my personal website by plain
HTTP and encrypted HTTP. (I quit running SSL after some nasty security
problems cropped up, since I did not actually need the encryption, but used
it merely for proof-of-concept.)

## Virtual hosts. Note that HTTP and HTTPS run on different ports, so I need
## two virtual host per domain if I want the same content accessible by both 
## HTTP and HTTPS. This is what I do here.
## An alternative is to use BindAddress ir Listen for IP-based vitual hosts. 
## This is not usally done since you need one IP address per vitual host.
## Any httpd.conf or srm.conf directive may go into a VirtualHost command.
## Example:
##    <VirtualHost host.some_domain.com>
##    ServerAdmin webmaster@host.some_domain.com
##    DocumentRoot /var/www/host.some_domain.com
##    ServerName host.some_domain.com
##    ErrorLog /var/log/apache/host.some_domain.com-error.log
##    TransferLog /var/log/apache/host.some_domain.com-access.log
##    </VirtualHost>

NameVirtualHost # replace with your IP. Note port 80 for no SSL
NameVirtualHost # replace with your IP. Note that 443 is http/ssl port
