Debian apache & mod_evasive

Hello all

I try to enable mod_evasive to debian 6.0.7.
After installing I try to configure as follows

testpc:/etc/apache2/mods-enabled# cat mod-evasive.load
LoadModule evasive20_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/

<IfModule mod_evasive20.c>
DOSHashTableSize 3097
DOSPageCount 5
DOSSiteCount 50
DOSPageInterval 1
DOSSiteInterval 1
DOSBlockingPeriod 60
DOSLogDir /var/log/apache2/evasive2

testpc:/var/log/apache2# php -r 'phpinfo();' | grep -i evasive
The module doesn't seem to be loaded.
Also after creating a few hundreds fake connections to the Apache, it doesn't seem to block any connections or create any logs...

Am I doing something wrong ?

Thank you
