In a debian based installation (e.g. Ubuntu) you shouldn't make those
changes directly in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf control over which
modules enabled is via the /etc/apache2/mods-enabled directory which
in turn has symlinks to the real module.load and module.conf files in
/etc/apache2/mods-available. The apache2.conf pulls these in at the
$ grep enabled /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
sites-enabled is intended for configuration files for virtual hosts.
There's a little more to understand than, say, an apache installation
in redhat, but the structure has a lot of advantages in being able to
modularize and control the configuration.
