Yehuda, I understand that when I make changes in the Apache config, because
I'm using cPanel, I have to do it just right.   I know how to make changes
so they don't get overwritten.   I'd still like to know though if reverse
proxies is what I'm looking for.   Perhaps the Apache mailing list wasn't
the best place to ask.   Please ignore the part about cPanel all together.

If I wanted to hide the port number from visitors so when they went to
something like, it'd show instead,
do you think I could accomplish that using a reverse proxy?   Is there any
other ways to accomplish this that anyone knows of?   Thank you!
