Can not get confluence to work through port 80


I am combining crowd, jira and confluence onto the same Linux (Ubuntu 12.10) machine.

I has successfully redirected jira to work through the standard port 80, by using apache mod_proxy.

No matter what I try, I can not get confluence to work through port 80.

Please see the M$ word document for screenshots of the things I set.

Add please excuse my ignorence, I tried to grasp the concept here, but could you please explain the relevance of the other ports that are being defined in the server.xml, and how they might affect the other installations (jira, crowd, docminer, rcsis, ..)

Some of them seems to the same (redirect port 8443): Is this valid? Or should all ports be unique when running on the same server?

That would be:


<server port="8000" <="" p="">

I would say, you should follow step-by-step the procedure from Dave at Use a context as well. In that it talks about redirecting from Apache to JIRA. Repeat the exact same steps for Confluence as well. You will see in the instructions to add the below lines to httpd.conf ProxyPass / http://jiraserver:8080/ ProxyPassReverse / http://jiraserver:8080/ Repeat those two lines for confluence as well (do remember to gave a different context for confluence) (I have not read the document you mentioned)
