Apache proxy for CentOS 5 network installation

CentOS 5 provides a network installation image but during the network installation it is not possible to configure a proxy. The following configuration emulates a CentOS mirror with an Apache proxy.
<IfModule mod_proxy.c>
  ProxyPass /centos http://mirror.centos.org/centos
  ProxyPassReverse /centos http://mirror.centos.org/centos
  ProxyRemote * http://proxy:3128
It is necessary to enable the Apache modules proxy and proxy_http. After that it is possible to start the installation with the IP address of the Apache proxy and the URL /centos/5/os/i386.

SSI on Debian

Server Side Includes are an old fashioned way to enable active web server content. Debian provides a module
but lacks a configuration file. This configuration enables SSI for SHTML files.
<IfModule mod_include.c>

    Options +Includes
    AddType text/html .shtml
    AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
    DirectoryIndex index.shtml
