  -    <p>The <directive>ScoreBoardFile</directive> directive is required
  -    on some architectures to place a file that the server will use to
  -    communicate between its children and the parent. The easiest way
  -    to find out if your architecture requires a scoreboard file is to
  -    run Apache and see if it creates the file named by the
  -    directive. If your architecture requires it then you must ensure
  -    that this file is not used at the same time by more than one
  -    invocation of Apache.</p>
  +    <p>Apache uses a scoreboard to communicate between its children
  +    and the parent. Some architectures require a file to facilitate
  +    this communication. If left unspecified, Apache first attempts to
  +    create the scoreboard entirely in memory (using anonymous shared
  +    memory), and failing that will attempt to create the file on disk
  +    (using file-based shared memory). Specifying this directive causes
  +    Apache to always create the file on the disk.</p>
  -    <p>If you have to use a <directive>ScoreBoardFile</directive> then
  +    <p>File-based shared memory is useful for third-party applications
  +    that require direct access to the scoreboard.</p>
  +    <p>If you use a <directive>ScoreBoardFile</directive> then
       you may see improved speed by placing it on a RAM disk. But be
       careful that you heed the same warnings about log file placement
       and <a href="../misc/security_tips.html">security</a>.</p>
