3) modify conf/autoload_configs/modules.conf.xml, remove mod_limit and add
mod_db and mod_hash
4) create/edit conf/autoload_configs/db.conf.xml if using ODBC

module.  They are not standalone and provide functionality specific to

I've updated the wiki with documentation.  I'll continue to update the wiki
as necessary, feel free to do so yourself if there is something unclear or
