Set apache subdomain reverse proxy for bitbucket Edited

I read several documentations "how to make it possible" like these

I not even try to use https for the moment. First I wanna a small success, access bitbucket via my subdomain...


Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

Bitbucket 5.0.0







<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName mysub.mydomain.mytld
        DocumentRoot /opt/atlassian/bitbucket/5.0.0/

        ProxyRequests Off
        ProxyVia Off

        <Directory /opt/atlassian/bitbucket/5.0.0/>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        Require all granted

          ProxyPass         /bitbucket  http://mydomain.mytld:7990/
          ProxyPassReverse  /bitbucket  http://mydomain.mytld:7990/




<Directory /opt/atlassian/bitbucket/5.0.0/>
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted



restart commands

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

within /opt/atlassian/bitbucket/5.0.0/bin/


bitbucket base url (bitbucket settings administration)



- With the default bitbucket works, when I call http://mydomain:mytld:7990/

- With my custom, when I call http://mysub.mydomain.mytld/ shows me the index of all files in this directory. When I create an index.html file, it is displayed. But no trace of bitbucket.

A couple of things to try:

  • Remove the DocumentRoot and Directory sections, these aren't used when proxying and may be getting in the way.
  • Check that mod_proxy is correctly installed and enabled
  • Check the logs after restarting apache

In short, it looks like Bitbucket is working, but apache isn't configured correctly to proxy through to it. Section 2 in the first page you linked to shows the sum total of config you should need, anything extra might be getting in the way.
