Hi,
   Is it possible to place two distinct SSLs on a single Apache server instance? The Apache instance would serve two different sites, and the sites require two different SSL certificates.

Thanks in advance.

Yes and no.  SSL Certificates are meant for one distinct IP address.  So you would need multiple IP's.  However there are ways of getting around it.  If you're using a linux box (Which I assume you are), I would recommend trying out a web management program called ISPConfig, and here is a how-to on how to enable multiple https sites on one ip.
