Can I have Bitbucket and Jira on the same server with SSL on both?

I have Jira and Bitbcuket on the same server and need to turn on SSL for each. I have successfully enabled it for JIRA and am able to browse over https. However for Bitbucket I am not able to do so. I changed the port in the server.xml file for bitbucket to 9443 so that Jira and it dont have the same ports. It does not seem to work though for bitbucket. Am I able to run them both on the same server with SSL? Did I miss a spot to change the ssl port bitbucket?

3. When trying to browse I get the site cannot be reached.

Its not obvious that you cannot change the port in server.xml for bitbucket so I`ll not use the RTFM today :)

Hello - Sorry for the delayed response on this. I did figure it out after finding this documentation on another forum. I am now able to get both running over https. Thank you everyone for the assistance.
