Invalid command "ProxyPass" Native Windows

Hey, I just installed the mean stack on Windows 10. Followed the instructions on adding an app. However, when I start up Apache, it just shuts down again. I reviewed the error log and didn’t see any errors, so I ran the command from the log to start Apache to see if it gave any more information. It gave me this:

AH00526: Syntax error on line 1 of C:/Bitnami/meanstack-3.2.6-2/apps/testApp/conf/httpd-app.conf:
Invalid command ‘ProxyPass’, perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

I am new to Apache, it appears that I need to enable/add a mod_proxy. Shouldn’t this just work out of the box for the Bitnami MEAN stack?


I located the Apache httpd.conf and uncommented the following lines:

LoadModule proxy_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_express_module modules/

Not sure if this is all I need ATM, but at least it starts.
