First, you need to understand where the problem lies.  It's not Confluence at all.  The vulnerability is actually in your browser, not the server, so you should upgrade/patch your browser as the first step.

But you can protect people using flawed browsers by turning off the affected encryption methods on your server.

How you do that depends on what the server is, so you need to know what server Confluence is being served up by.  Is it plain Tomcat doing all the work?  Or have you put Apache/Nginx/IIS/lightppd/etc in front of it?

If you've followed the instructions, then I'm afraid it has worked, unless you've got a very peculiar apache setup. I can't help you with "it didn't work" without the detail of what you have done differently from the documentation. It's no good trying other routes, you need to set up your apache correctly. As for "what you need to upgrade", I've already told you. Upgrade the browser.
