If you're familiar with Perl, you could generate your Apache config file

There are two ways to do this. One is to write a script that
interrogates your database and other datastores, and writes out a full
Apache config file. When the config file is rewritten you tell Apache
to re-read its config file.

The more interesting approach is to use mod_perl, and then embed Perl in
your Apache configuration file. This lets you write a much smaller
config file, as you can use Perl's looping constructs.

You can see an example of this approach here:


Hope that helps,
