That's asking a lot.

Did you disable the reverse proxy config?  I'm surprised you "only"
had environment variable problems.  Or did it not work at all and this
is just an unnecessary tangent?

This relationship doesn't make sense.  If you had no proxy, you'd set
environment variables your backend server could see.  Adding a reverse
proxy doesn't change anything.

>(unless there's a way to hide the Google Maps API Key and the currency API Access Key
that I can use with a reverse proxy in Apache, so that I don't have put the keys in there
directly--is there something like this?).

Hide from who?

I made.

If you have a working backend service, and you put the bog-standard
Apache reverse proxy in front of it, what specifically in terms of the
request or response isn't working?
Putting a reverse proxy in front of a backend service that doesn't
work isn't going to make it start working.
