Hmmm.  What I can remember from fussing around with mine and looking 
through the Apache documentation is that you're better off using the 
default or other conf file in /etc/apache2/sites-available, and 
symlinking it or them to /sites-enabled.  In other words, leave 
ports.conf blank or commented out, and don't put IP address or port 
number information in apache2.conf.  I ran into similar, though not 
identical problems, and they weren't resolved until I did this.

Here's a portion of my default.conf:

Listen 80
     ServerName ellisonpsychology.ca

and virtuals.conf:

Listen 443


ServerName appears within VirtualHost - it doesn't seem to matter 
whether it's inside or outside it.

It's in both apache.conf and ports.conf, as well as in both dirac.org 
and iuselinux.org

I think you will need to either assign port 80 to one domain name and a 
different port to the other, or use port 80 and specify the other 
domains as ServerAliases.

I'll send you my entire site files if you want.
