Get a list of all virtual hosts which are defined in all apache configuration files

Have you ever looked in the apache config files to see where a website's virtual host is defined? The apache2ctl script has a useful option that could come in good here. When you execute the command, it should look like this:

apache2ctl -S

You'll obtain a list of all virtual hosts and default servers in the shell, along with the line number where they're declared. Example:

~# apache2ctl -S
VirtualHost configuration:
wildcard NameVirtualHosts and _default_ servers:
*:8080                 is a NameVirtualHost
default server ispconfig.local (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-ispconfig.vhost:10)
port 8080 namevhost ispconfig.local (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-ispconfig.vhost:10)
*:8081                 is a NameVirtualHost
default server ispconfig.local (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-apps.vhost:10)
port 8081 namevhost ispconfig.local (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-apps.vhost:10)
*:80                   is a NameVirtualHost
default server ispconfig.local (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default:1)
port 80 namevhost ispconfig.local (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default:1)
port 80 namevhost example.com (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/example.com.vhost:7)
Syntax OK
