Can you provide any specific issues you are having. We have bamboo running behind apache on many sites. But hard to tell what your issue is without more detail

Make sure in your wrapper.conf you set it to use the jetty.xml file.

In the jetty file use an SSL connector as such :

<Call name="addConnector">


<New class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.ssl.SslSelectChannelConnector">

<Set name="host"><Property name="" /></Set>

<Set name="port"><Property name="jetty.port" default="8443"/></Set>

<Set name="Keystore"><SystemProperty name="jetty.home" default="."/>/keystore</Set>

<Set name="Password">MYCERTPASSWORD</Set>

<Set name="KeyPassword">MYCERTPASSWORD</Set>




Where the /keystore is the actual keystore file. YOu need to use keytool to import a self-signed cert or regular cert-authority signed cert (either is fine). Then this forces Bamboo to listen on a secure port.

In your Apache HTTPD.conf file you need proxypass and proxypassreverse to use the 8443 port, not the defautl http-based on.

ProxyPassReverse /cit https://MYBAMBOOURL:8443/cit
