Subject Re: [users@httpd] Reverse Proxy for Web Application (or adding it as extension to Apache web server)

I need to do this for?

but I don't have a host name aside from the one I'm setting up a virtual host for (and that
host name doesn't exist outside of being a virtual host).

What does an email address have to do with HTTP servers?

 I'm confident only in using the same email address as the one for
this Outlook account.

You can simply append it to httpd.conf if you don't want to restrict
it to a particular incoming virtual host. If you do, use that context

Typically yes.

to work correctly; since it's a Google Maps application with a currency conversion form on
it, it needs a Google Maps API Key and an Access Key for the currency API.  On lines 130 and
133, I use std::getenv() to get the values in the environment variables.  So also need to
know how to make that work in Apache.

Apache can't pass environment variables to a backend proxied server
and doesn't start your backend server.  What do you want Apache to do
