Yes, I just noticed that; copy-paste bug from the standalone page link,
will fix.

That's caused by the the access control constraints, as I point out in
the text you quoted. I tried circumventing that in .htaccess, but the
incubator site config doesn't load mod_headers, so that won't help.

We'll either have to change the httpd config for that site -- load
mod_headers, or set up a proxy to the real status page --or come up with
a way to copy the updated status page directly from minotaur to the live

I think updating the httpd config is the more realistic option, since it
doesn't presume a ssh tunnel between minotaur and the site server.
