It does, but on Snow Leopard and Lion this will only change state hidden
inside launchd's private config; that is, it will not actually edit the
plist file as it did in Leopard and earlier, so simply checking for that
key in the plist won't tell you anything.

You might want to check /Applications/Utilities/Console.app to see if
apache logged any errors.
