Javascript Question

Regular expression to match exact same block

Please help me to find out a specific text included block from this file.
I'm reading context using Node js fs.

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /home/site1
ServerName www.site1.com
<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /home/site2
ServerName www.site2.com
<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /home/site3
ServerName www.site3.com


var matched = fileContext.toString().replace( /<VirtualHost[\s\S]*?<\/VirtualHost>/gm,"--matched--" );

above code is working fine but it will match all vhost blocks.
I only needs to find vhost block which is contain "www.site2.com"


After some deliberation, I've come to the conclusion that regex isn't going to cut the mustard. I'd recommend using node-apacheconf.

var name = "www.site2.com";

apacheconf('/etc/apache2/httpd.conf', function(err, config, parser) {
  if (err) throw err

  console.log(config.VirtualHost.filter(function(vh) {
    return vh.ServerName == name;
