Confluence server showing IP address instead of subdomain name while using apache

Hi everyone,

Please i need help. 

I have Jira server and confluence server installed on single linux vm with same ip address but different ports. I installed apache2 for reverse proxy so that i can access without port number at the end. 

jira.example.com

confluence.example.com

Problem is i am able to access jira server but when i try to access confluence.example.com it opens confluence but ip address is shown instead to domain name.

I have two separate virtual host files in apache2.

Please if anyone can help to solve this issue will be great.

Thanks

That would suggest the base url is set to the ip address, or the proxy settings are doing something odd.

Thanks. Its working now. :) 

Can you please shed some light on how to get ssl certification for jira and confluence? 

Talk to a certification authority, or use self signed.  Google will find you a good list of the reputable authorities, and if you want it cheap, "letsencrypt" has rather a good product, growing in popularity.

For installing them https://confluence.atlassian.com/kb/securing-your-atlassian-applications-with-apache-using-ssl-838284349.html is a decent guide.

My guess is that you have not got the changes to the server.xml correct.  Did you make the suggested changes in the proxying connector?

Yes i did. Mow i am facing other problem. I am not able to start confluence server. Getting following error:

Using Java: /opt/atlassian/confluence/jre//bin/java
