Try starting httpd or apachectl directly rather than through the redhat scripts.

But I'd give at least 3:1 odds that your problem is improper SELinux
configuration on your new modules, meaning that the SELinux-restricted
httpd cannot load them or one of their dependencies.  I don't have the
recipe for the solution, but check the links under "Permission Denied"
