Gabriel, this is false. I run a webserver here at the HSC that serves
up various domains and 4 HTTPS sites concurrently. 3 of the HTTPS
sites are the same IP and 1 is on a dedicated IP.

Here is how I have it (domains and IP are removed)

CentOS5 (Apache 2.1)

NameVirtualHost x.x.x.x:443

<VirtualHost x.x.x.x:443>
DocumentRoot /home/www/xxxxxx
Servername xxxxxxxxx.uthscsa.edu
ServerAdmin jeremy at xxxxxx.uthscsa.edu
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/xxxxx/xxxxx.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/xxxxxx/xxxxx.key

Repeat for as many https domains you need and restart Apache
