Proxy_http2 and other modules in Apache (do they need to be activated?)

In the old Apache server I had these modules active and I wonder if I should also activate them in Virtualmin. Especially proxy_http2 instead of proxy_http.
socache_shmcb, include, cgid, proxy_http2, sysenv, userdir, proxy_wstunnel

Furthermore, mod_sysenv is not even listed and needs to be installed.

Thanks in advance.

OS type and version Debian 12
Webmin version 2.105
Virtualmin version 7.10.0

Up to you really if anything you use needs these modules obviously activate/install them. I see little point activating/installing modules you are never going to use just so it matches a previous setup

You’re right, but I was assuming that that was also a standard configuration.
Never activate or deactivate a module unless explicitly requested.

The Virtualmin installer activates what it needs for all of the configuration it will do in a default install (there are some other Virtualmin plugins that work with non-default modules, but you probably don’t want them at this point in history…old creaky stuff like mod_perl and mod_svn). Anything else is your business, not ours.

I would encourage you to read up on what a module does before enabling it (same goes for packages when installing, services when enabling them, configuration options when changing them, etc.).
