Galène acts as a standalone HTTPS server, it does not rely on a separate
web server.  On, we run a stock web server on port 443 (static
files only), and a standalone instance of Galène on port 8443.

Some people prefer to run Galène behind a reverse proxy (a web server
acting as a reverse proxy).  While not the recommended mode of operation,
this is a perfectly legitimate choice.

If you run Galène as a standalone server (the recommended mode of operation),
there are no prerequisites, the web server does not even need to be aware
of Galène.

If you run Galène behind a reverse proxy, then you need whatever
implementation of a reverse proxy your web server requires.  In the case
of Apache, this is "mod_proxy", I believe.  You'll probably want to run
Galène with the "-insecure" option, in order to simplify configuration.
