The Listen directive does not implement Virtual Hosts - it only tells the main server what addresses and ports to listen on. If no <VirtualHost> directives are used, the server will behave in the same way for all accepted requests. However, <VirtualHost> can be used to specify a different behavior for one or more of the addresses or ports. To implement a VirtualHost, the server must first be told to listen to the address and port to be used. Then a <VirtualHost> section should be created for the specified address and port to set the behavior of this virtual host. Note that if the <VirtualHost> is set for an address and port that the server is not listening to, it cannot be accessed.
