Firstly, be sure that the module is actually enabled.

As far as specific directives are concerned, here's how I do it; I add
these directives to my primary Apache configuration file:

<IfModule mod_info.c>
<Location /server-info>
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
SetHandler server-info
SSLOptions +StrictRequire
SSLRequireSSL
SSLRequire %{HTTP_HOST} eq "example.com"
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Authorization Required"
AuthBasicProvider dbm
AuthDBMType DB
AuthDBMUserFile "/var/www/apache-users"
AuthDBMGroupFile "/var/www/apache-users"
require group programmers
</Location>
</IfModule>

Tailor to suit your specific requirements.

If you're using Apache 2.4, you will need to change the first two lines
inside the <Location> block, as 2.4 uses a different syntax.

Good luck!
