Simple Reverse Proxy Not Working (BitBucket 5.6 & Apache)

I have scoured these forums and spent days attempting to fix this problem, but I have not had any luck.

I have a test development server that I am setting up on AWS and I am attempting to redirect both Jira and Bitbucket using Apache Reverse Proxy, to a subdomain and context path on port 80 (for now, ssl later).

I got Jira working in MINUTES. Bitbucket, and its properties file, has given me serious headaches. I get nothing but a white screen when attempting to access my proxy address for bitbucket. Reverting my proxy and using port 7990 directly works.

Please find below relevant snippets from both my apache.conf file, and




        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost

        DocumentRoot /var/www/html


        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log

        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

        #LogLevel debug

        ProxyRequests Off

        <Proxy *>

                Order deny,allow

                Require all granted


        ProxyPass /bitbucket http://localhost:7990/bitbucket connectiontimeout=5 timeout=300

        ProxyPassReverse /bitbucket http://localhost:7990/bitbucket

        ProxyPass /jira http://localhost:8080/

        ProxyPassReverse /jira http://localhost:8080/

Hi Carmine,

Bitbucket should be running on 7990 without the context path. Also remove the server.port and it will default to the server.xml
