If I load a second configuration, what, if anything, will happen to the 
configuration that's already running? I can't knock that one offline. We 
have paid programs that we pay to run and that others pay for us to run, 
so if I knock production offline, somebody's not going to be happy. 
That's why I asked about running two instances of the server--one for 
production, and one for me to work on with SSL enabled.
