I'm not sure I understand either the question _or_ the answer.  I don't
think the question was really "who" but "how".

You _can't_ install only apache (and _WHY_ would you not install apache2?).

I think you really must be asking why you got the "apache2-utils" package,
and I have to admit I'm not sure - it doesn't seem like it should be a
dependency of apache.

otoh, if you're really asking why your install _failed_, you should probably
have given us the next couple of lines of output...
