Apache virtual hosts and cloudflared

It has taken a full THREE days for a staff member to review this post, and to finally approve it.

In the meantime, I have made some progress on this end.

Using Apache, if I set the IP of the vHost to 127.0.0.1 (i.e.localhost,) it works.

To access blahblah(dot)net without the subdomain, I ignored all RFCs, and did set up blahblah(dot)net as a CNAME pointing to the tunnel ID. That works.

The recommended page rule that sends blahblah.net/* to https://ww2.blahblah(dot)net/$1 did not work. It resulted in blahblah.net/* to be sent to the web server. The CNAME solution appears to be the cleanest, no irritating WW2 in front of the domain name.

Currently, I am trying to make it work with lightspeed, but no success so far. 502 errors, and nothing in the lightspeed logs. Firewall off, lightspeed works when accessed the old way.
