          Using Apache's rewrite rule functionality requires
          that the 'mod_rewrite' and 'mod_proxy' Apache modules
          be enabled.  This can for instance be done by
          configuring Apache with the '--enable-modules="rewrite
          proxy"' flag during compile time or by loading the
          corresponding shared modules. If you are using the new
          Apache 2 series, you will also have to include the
          'mod_proxy_http' module. See the
          "Apache":http://httpd.apache.org/ documentation for

             The Apache link could be more specific to be helpful, such as http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/index.html

             You might also want to tell someone how to verify whether these modules are already installed. Yes, you
             shouldn't get into detail since that's in the Apache docs, but you're going to the trouble of telling them
             which rewrite rules to use, and that's in the docs too, so you're already duplicating the Apache docs
             somewhat. Anyway, I would suggest something like the following: "You likely already have one or more of these
             modules enabled, and you would typically check by seeing what is enabled in the 'LoadModule' section of
             httpd.conf. See the Apache documentation for details."
