Debian's package makes the configuration very confusing.  If you have
an up-to-date Apache then "httpd -M" will tell you straight away, but ..

Don't do that - you just slowed your server by making it do
hostnamelookups.  If someone wants to DOS your server,
you've just made their job much easier.

Much better to use IP addresses instead. is often
sufficient for mod_info (and mod_status).
