reducing size of apache instances

My Apache 2.2 instances are running about 18 Meg each. I've been
thinking about doing something to trim these down, and I think tomorrow
is the day to take action. They are getting out of hand.
I've done a bit of research on this. I think the way to get started is
to eliminate unused modules. Problem is, I know which ones I need, since
I purposefully added them. I *don't* know which ones I don't need, if
you see what I mean, since I inherited them from the default configuration.
I assume that some are critical to the basic operation of Apache. I am
hoping I can google a list of these tomorrow. Obviously these I'll have
to live with.
But what about the set that is left after I remove the ones the system
needs, and the ones I need? How do I know which ones I can safely turn
off? All I can think of is a trial and error process (i.e., turn them
off one by one and see if anything breaks.)
Is there a better way?
