it doesn't mean that all of that RAM is used for Apache. There are 
countless tools to measure RAM usage, but for a quick look, e.g. this 
script can be helpful (it just presents some values from proc): 
https://raw.github.com/pixelb/ps_mem/master/ps_mem.py
Run it once with apache running and once without, and compare it to the 
output of free (column used - cached).

Did you already disable all unused services in your distribution? Is 
this a minimal server install or a full-fledged installation?
Did you already disable all unused modules in apache2? Some 
distributions come with mod_python, etc. pp. activated, which is useless 
if you only host Owncloud. You should also check your mpm parameters.

What about mysql, have you checked the configuration (table buffers, 
join buffers, caches, etc.).
There are too many factors that influence this to give a rule of thumb imho.

Greetings
André
