You could try a few things from the command line:
1. go to /etc/ and look for an apache.conf file or httpd.conf file. If you see either of these you have apache installed.
2. type ps -aux | less and look for something that says apache or httpd. If you see either of those then apache is running.
3. type apachectl stop and then apachectl start. If you get corresponding messages that don't look like errors then you've stopped and started apache.
4. YMMV - depending on the distro it could be installed different places. Mine, or instance are in /usr/local/apache2 so I need to type /usr/local/apache2/apache2ctl stop, etc.
Hope this helps.
