How to integrate Confluence with apache using ssl


can I use the How-To for JIRA ( as a model for integrating confluence with apache using ssl?

Are there any differences I will need to pay attention to or can I just use it 1:1 for integrating confluence?

Thank you very much.

Actually, both answers I received (being the same) did not take into account that I would like to access both platforms via https at the same time.

Maybe I should have mentioned that both, Jira and confluence, are running on the same machine.

My solution:

  • Use one IP per platform (configure 2 IPs on the same server).
  • Use wildcard certificate for SSL
  • Use IP-based Virtual hosts configuration in Apache
  • Use the How-to I quoted for BOTH, Jira and confluence set-up (server.xml), not the one quoted for confluence by both answers.

I hope this helps others who want to set up Jira and confluence on the same server using SSL.

Confluence has it's guide at

In general, it should be similar as both deployed in Tomcat
