I want to host multiple SSL websites on my virtual private server. I was told that in order to achieve this, I need to do IP-based virtual hosting. If this is the case, can someone recommend a newb guide on how to set this up?

I am using Ubuntu 9.10, apache 2, and php 5.

You don't need to do IP based virtual hosting. You just need to make sure each VirtualHost that your are running an SSL site on is bound to a unique IP.
