Running Confluence behind Apache2

I decided to run my personal Confluence installation behind the Apache2 server running on my Debian Linux box using the mod_proxy configuration. I followed the instructions on Atlassians documentation pages (When using Debian it is described in the Jira docs) but ran into a problem afterwards.
Confluence was not accessible and I received a "Permission Denied" error when accessing confluence over HTTP (http://quebbemann.kicks-ass.net/confluence/).
The solution was to enable the Apache module proxy_http:
a2enmod proxy_http
After a Apache restart everything worked as expected!
