Might be worth mentioning that SNI is not supported on Internet Explorer on Windows XP. Depending on the user base for your site/s this may be a big concern for you. –  ThatGraemeGuy Apr 18 '10 at 19:13

I've never tried it, but the documentation seems to say that you only need to have an OpenSSL which supports SNI, which should do as you need Apache 2.2.12 and OpenSSL 0.9.8j or better, the rest of the configuration should be the same as normal SSL configuration in apache, that is, adding something like :

SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile "/path/to/your.crt"
SSLCertificateKeyFile "/path/to/your.key"
SSLVerifyClient None

to your vhost.

You may add a :

SSLStrictSNIVHostCheck on

if you see fit.
