Yes. By default mod_mono *starts* mod-mono-server. Of course, mod_mono
is not omniscient and will not start it if the prefix used when building
it is not the same used when building mono or in some other non-default
cases. See --with-mono-prefix in configure for mod_mono and mod_mono
supported directives to make it work for other cases.

It will also fail to run it if, for example, a user runs mod-mono-server
in the console and after that, he starts apache as root/www-data because
the first run with the user id might have left some files/directories
behind for which apache does not have permission. I'm not saying this is
your case, but it might be.
