Hey Christian,

(I am moving this thread to hcoop-help, so please make any further
replies there and/or subscribe to that list from the Members portal
to see other people's comments).

What the above paragraph means is that you will have to run your own
instance of Apache, and proxy requests coming to your domain (and
our shared Web server) to your own web server.

I hope others who have done this for themselves and are on the -help
list can chime in with specific information about it.
