Confluence behind Apache mod_proxy with setup similar to Stash

would like to setup : http://confluence.example.com

from Stash docs:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASH/Integrating+Stash+with+Apache+HTTP+Server#IntegratingStashwithApacheHTTPServer-Step1:ConfiguretheTomcatConnector

scheme="http"
proxyName="stash.example.com" 
proxyPort="80"

with mod_proxy setup :

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

has someone been able to configure Confluence the same way? I am aware of https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Using+Apache+with+mod_proxy

just wondering - why is it using different instructions? something in Confluence that prevents this way?

Create separate VirtualHosts and use a NameVirtualHost declaration at the top. Try something along the lines of:

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *>
    ServerName confluence.example.com

    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On
 
    <Proxy *>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
    </Proxy>
     
    ProxyPass / http://localhost:8090/confluence
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8090/confluence
        
    <Location />
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Location>
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *>
    ServerName stash.example.com
     
    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On
 
    <Proxy *>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
    </Proxy>
     
    ProxyPass / http://localhost:7990/stash connectiontimeout=5 timeout=300
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:7990/stash
     
    <Location />
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Location>
</VirtualHost>

thanks - my tools live on separate servers. will fight it a bit more and report back :)

Not really... Truth be told, it's a case of different people in different teams wrote different docs. Are you having issues with the configuration?

yes, straigtforward attempt to mirror Stash's instructions did not work for Confluence, but worked for JIRA. well - will try again. thanks!
