Are there any (Linux compatible) desktop GUI tools to administer Apache2?

How about gVim? :) Seriously, though - it's well worth your time to work your way through the CLI learning curve. Yes, there will be some frustration while you're learning, but it's a skill that can be incredibly valuable. –  EEAA Nov 2 '10 at 23:41
@Erika thx for the suggestion but I've actually been using gVim for some time. My objective was essentially to discover new Apache features that I might not be aware from in a friendly manner. –  Olivier Lalonde Nov 3 '10 at 4:01
Actually, if your goal is to discover new Apache features, I'd recommend against a GUI tool. By design, they typically focus on the "20% that 80% of people use". For discovery of cool new awesomeness, I'd recommend going through the config files, blogs, the wiki/documentation, and books like O'Reilly's Apache Cookbook. –  gWaldo Nov 4 '10 at 12:12

GAdminTools has a httpd tool (GAdminHTTPD), but I'm not sure if it'll do Apache 2, or if it's v1.3 only.

You can try Cherokee Web Server if you would like to administer your web server via GUI.

Webmin has a module for Apache. Being a web app, it's not exactly a desktop GUI, but it does run on Linux.
