Copy of Confluence update original


We run our Confluence inside a virtual machine. For testing the 4.0 version, I made a clone of that machine. We have nog machine A ( and machine B (

Before the update, I want to change the base url and backup settings. Whenever I try to change the base url on machine B, I get forwarded to machine A (logical, it was the current base url), but that config is changed on both machines. So that base url is also changed on machine A which is our live machine. When I change is back on machine A, it is also changed on machine B.

Both have their databases on the localhost (checked it twice). So, how do I change the base url of only machine B?

I did find some settings in the database (select * from bandana where bandanakey = 'atlassian.confluence.settings'; will give you the correct key). But changing that and restarting Confluence doesn't have any effect.

I stopped testing it some time ago, but found some time today to clear out this issue. Appearantly, there is a apache running on port 80 who does proxypass and reverse stuff.

Even when I updated the original, it was showing up on the clone which was very strange.

Thanks for pointing in the right direction :)

Sounds strange. If you could access the clone machine via localhost (bypassing any proxy), I'd advise you to change the server base URL through it.
