What files did you copy? You only mentioned before a C++ based HTTP
server.   I don't think copying anything like that to be served
directly by Apache would help.
There are much more involved/estoeric solutions in this area, but they
wouldn't just be a matter of copying files.  These options would be
FastCGI or writing an Apache module. Both are much more complicated
than a reverse proxy if you already have a backend HTTP server.

It's not clear why you want anything in front of your c++ http server.
But you are really missing the basics of how multiple
servers/processes will be interacting.
