quick script to create new vhost I made a couple years ago when I started to use bash. This is a really basic script with lot of case who can break it. Feel free to comment

WGET=$(which wget)
WGET_OPTS='--truc -bidule'
2° vérifier que "service existe", ou faire /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
3° check $? (specially for a2ensite)
4° use ${VAR} instead of $VAR
5° EOF for vhost
7° use functions insteads of echoes + --verbose + --quiet
8° check_rcode if cp or rm has error
9° rename to a2addvhost ?
10° getopt
11° source path/to/lib , define $lib_version , getopt, verbose, etc...
