apache not working

i'm new here and in the dedicated server world, i messed up with apache configuration and when i was going to restart it it gave me this

 * Starting apache 2.0 web server...
Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/alias.load:
module alias_module is built-in and can't be loaded

I would start by opening the file referenced in the error message, look at line 1 and if it's just a module name I would comment it out, and then try to start apache again..

It looks like it's saying that functionality is compiled directly into your version of apache2 and you are trying to load a module to do the same thing..

it-lenny:/etc/apache2/mods-enabled# cat alias.load
# LoadModule alias_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/
