Looks like you are trying to use modules that you didnt load. Like 
mod_proxy or ssl. How did you compile? What was the commandline and how 
does your httpd.conf looks like? You dont give very much info besides 
that it doesnt work...You dont even tell us what version you run and on 
what distro!
You also might want to visit and look at the compiling
