Bug: Virtual hosts configuration saved inside files with period/dot in filename are not processed, e.g. /etc/apache2/sites-available/

The a2ensite and a2dissite commands will see the files and work correctly to create/remove the symlinks in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/

However, apache2 does not appear to read the file, there is no error related to the virtual hosts even with apache -S

if the file is renamed as mysite.conf, apache will load the virtual host correctly. No other change is needed and there does not appear to be any requirement in Apache 2.4 documentation that requires the files not to use period/dots in the filename
