Confluence over HTTPS

Hello there,

I am a bit of a Tomcat/Httpd noobie and have a few questions. I want to enable SSL connection with cert from a CA (thawte). I am confused on whether I am using tomcat to handle my connections or Https mod_proxy. I tried searching the linux box for a .keystore file but I could not find one. I believe I am using mod_proxy as my apache httpd.conf has a proxy line uncommented at the end. If I am using mod_proxy what should I be using to create my CSR?

Take a look at this documentation

Also, if you want to add mod_proxy, then I recommend that you check how to configure Apache with SSL.

I am not sure if I am using mod_proxy already as my httpd.conf has a proxy line in it.
