I just tried setting up HTTPS for my Confluence but it didn't work at all. After restarting the Confluence service "nmap -sT -O localhost" just shows me port 8090 but not 8443. I followed the instructions on https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Running+Confluence+Over+SSL+or+HTTPS. Regular
What do I have to do to open port 8443 on localhost?
The connector is uncommented as it should be and I restarted the confluence service properly after editing the server.xml file. Here are the contents of my server.xml file ([PASSWORD] acts as a placeholder, on my server I entered the correct password).
<Connector port="8443" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75" enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true" acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" SSLEnabled="true" URIEncoding="UTF-8" keystorePass="[PASSWORD]" keystoreFile="/home/confluence1/.keystore"/>
SElinux is set to SELINUX=enforcing and SELINUXTYPE=targeted. Is this correct?
"netstat -anp | grep 8443" gives me nothing. :(
"so the logical conclusion is that Confluence isn't started."
Nope, my Confluence is running properly. There is a process running and I can access my Confluence via browser - so it's there! ;) But only on port 8090.
I found the problem: I have to mention that I reinstalled Confluence porting it from the embedded database to a PostgreSQL database. There are two installation paths, one "/var/atlassian/application-data/confluence/" and another to "/var/atlassian/application-data/confluence_postgresql/". My Confluence is using the PostgreSQL Database (I checked it at the Confluence system information page) so it uses the postgresql-path as installation path.
BUT I had a little typo during the installation and I assumed my Confluence configruation path as "/opt/atlassian/confluence" but it is named "/opft/atlassian/confluence_postgresql". Now after editing the correct server.xml nmap shows me that there is something listening on 8443. :)
Thanks for your help and sorry for causing any inconvenience or confusion! (However, I cannot access my Confluence via browser on port 8443 but I assume that there is some work to do with the firewall.)
