Confluence and Apache over SSL

We wish to deploy our instance on internet and would like to ensure that it's secure and robust. I have certain questions, can anybody of you give me suggestion.

1. Should both Apache and Confluence be SSL or only Confluence?

2. We are hosting an instance for 40k users, what parameters should we tune in both Apache and Tomcat?

 

Any other suggestions are welcome.

  1. Depends.  A standard approach is to set up the servers so that Confluence (i.e. Tomcat) is plain http, but only accessible via an Apache proxy.  Then you do SSL on the proxy only.
  2. Depends on usage.  Initially, you will probably want to tune very little and then only tune if you have issues.  Start at https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/server-hardware-requirements-guide-30736403.html
