Bug#83540: apache: Does not start when one or more vhosts are missing

Package: apache
Severity: normal
Followup-For: Bug #83540

Apache does not restart when one or more vhosts have been deleted and
have not been removed from the http config. Apache will not be able to
write to it's logfiles, and therefor fails to start up. This is unwanted 
behaviour, as logfiles are usually owned by the owners of that website.
Bug #83540 describes the not-starting part of this problem.

In my case, apache died at night during a logrotate which sent a
SIGUSR1 to apache (graceful restart). One vhost should not bring down an 
entire http-system.
