I am trying to install and run apache2, but after
apt-get purge apache2;apt-get install apache2 (as root), I am still missing the file
I am running Backtrack 5 RC 2, which is a Ubuntu devirate.
How can I fix that?

Given that you are purging, presumably you had it installed at some point and things went wrong. The /usr/sbin/apache2 binary isn't provided by the apache2 package, but by one of its dependencies:
If your binary is missing, but the package still installed, you can use the above command to figure out which package provides the binary and re-install.
