That would depend on your packager, who probably provides their
own system configuration tools.  Check their docs, and

If you were doing it from apache's own bundle, it would depend on
your build options.  With default options you'd have a whole lot of
modules (.so files) already there (though not all activated), so I
infer that's not what you have.
