Cannot access Confluence from domain name.

We installed Confluence 4+ on the same server as JIRA. We did not give it a domain name or anything at that time. We accessed it by simply using the jira address with port 90 specified.

http://jira.domain.com:90

This worked.

Then I asked if we could have http://confluence.domain.com instead.

And since then we have had problems.


I cannot access the confluence application via the domain name, only via jira:90.

Anyone got any experience in setting up confluence on the same box as JIRA that could give us some advice?

Any help appreciated.

Maybe something else is running already on port 80, be sure to check that first. Additionally, check our Apache integration guide if you're running Apache Web Server: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Integrating+JIRA+with+Apache

Jira is running on port 80. We are using Tomcat on a windows box..

We finally resolve this issue. Just followed the typical requirements of editing the Server.xml file, etc. However, I suspect our problem may have been not restarting the necessary services correctly. Reboot did eventually do the trick! lol...
