I'm having extreme trouble setting up a verified asset. I don't know how to use Apache to talk to servers to set up CORS. I don't know how to create a subdomain for well-known stellar.toml I'm stuck and don't know which direction to go.

Is there somewhere I can find people to help me in exchange for XLM payment?

Just to give you some direction with the technical issues.

  • Apache is a Webserver like Nginx or many others. You can use any you are familiar with. Apache won't talk to any other server. It serves the content for you. In this case the stellar.toml file. See https://enable-cors.org/server.html for some config examples for CORS.
  • .well-known/ is not a subdomain but the path where you make the stellar.toml file available. In case you are wondering why that path, see https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc5785

For Stellar, the web server Apache is like FileExplorer on Windows for you to hold/host files. These files are most likely the history archive files, which are generated at checkpoints at at regular intervals.

how Apache looks like -> have a look at http://torrent.ubuntu.com

CORS is the privacy policy that allows/blocks visitors coming into your Apache to get the files. The policy is set by you.

Suppose you set Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*" for Apache, you are allowing everyone on the web to access, which means no one is blocked.

No idea why you would like to demand a subdomain. More explanations?
