I will try that. Just copying another proxy file from apache.
Some webapps only work on direkt Domains without subdir or alias behind  it. But Im sure it will work.

Auth is no Problem. Cockpit uses system users like fbx or ldap users can also be used for access. So SSO works out of the box also on port 9090 without apache. This experience and first impressions are very good.
Without apache proxy, cockpit can be restricted for internal access only.
With apache proxy in use I would like to have a fail2ban module for cockpit!
