apache2ctl -S

I have something like that:

port 80 namevhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/
port 80 namevhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/

What does numbers after config files paths mean?

The line number in the configuration file where the <VirtualHost> directive begins that corresponds to the particular virtual host.

Apache retrieves its vhost settings using the DUMP_VHOSTS parameter option available to the httpd binary.
