I disagree, I think Joshua's answers were clear and concise.

He said that if it is not configured then you do not have it enabled. 
I don't think that is very difficult to understand though it does 
assume an understanding of the httpd.conf file and configuration of 
individual modules. However, even that is pretty basic stuff and 
easily understood through a perusal of the Apache documentation 
regarding modules.
