You shouldn't remove apache-ssl and apache-ssl/conf.d

They are configuration directories shipped with the package and apache-ssl
expect them to be there. On the other side you can remove all the files
inside them.

Same as the first problem. httpd.conf has an Include for conf.d that if it
is not there fails. Either you comment it out from httpd.conf or you
create the directory.
