Assuming that you have not set up PAM with a separate config file per 
service (why not?!) and this is the one being used for httpd, your problem 
is that apache will fail to satisfy the session module requirement.

Your PAM config for apache should only include account and auth entries.

This really should be in the README for the mod_auth_pam apache module as 
everyone seems to get bitten by it.
