Can't start mapr-webserver on centos

Hi all,

I'm trying to get a complete mapr installation so I can evaluate it against other solutions, but I can't even get through the 'yum install' process without errors. I've tracked all of them down except for one: when the mapr-webserver installation happens, it puts a config file in place and tries to start httpd, at which point I get an error saying 'ProxyRequests' is an invalid command. Why mapr assumes that the rest of the httpd config is valid and will 'just work' I have no idea.

So I add LoadModule mod_proxy and mod_proxy_http, because I'm guessing at this point that mod_proxy_ftp and the others aren't needed, and there's nothing in the deployment docs I've seen about setting up the web server.

So, I get an error on startup now that complains about "Starting httpd: httpd: Syntax error on line 20 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/mod_proxy_http.so into server: /etc/httpd/modules/mod_proxy_http.so: undefined symbol: ap_proxy_location_reverse_map".

If I remove mod_proxy_http, I get "Starting httpd: httpd: Syntax error on line 20 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Can't locate API module structure `mod_proxy' in file /etc/httpd/modules/mod_proxy.so: /etc/httpd/modules/mod_proxy.so: undefined symbol: mod_proxy"

Can someone clarify what the requirements are of the apache installation in order for all of this to work?
