I am installing confluence on a single node of AWS, and I am curious if by default the instance of confluence will be behind an apache server: Trying to follow the instructions outlined here:

Hi @Jeffrey Bistrong,

By default its Nginx if you're using cloud formation. 


but the template can be update to use apache instead.

@edwin thanks for the reply, bit of a newbie here. I will be using the server license of confluence and will be installing it on a single node of the AWS. Does your answer still apply, and could you point me in the right direction regarding instructions to do this. 

@Jeffrey Bistrong,

Got it. By default it won't be behind an apache server. You'll have to install apache separately forwarding traffic to Confluence's 8090 port.

This will be helpful. Proxying Atlassian server applications with Apache HTTP Server

Apache isn't required to allow anonymous access. You'll have to enable anonymous access on the site level

and also at space level.

@edwin I am in the process of doing the installation on AWS, and I am curious if, confluence will be hosted behind apache, if I need to install confluence in a specific apache directory or the standard location?

Hi Jeffrey,


Just checking if the installation and therefore database connectivity and usage went fine when installing Confluence on a single node in AWS......i will have to do the same on a linux server in AWS. So any major roadblocks you faced if you can share will be most helpful.

Hi Ramhya,


I ended up not needing to do this. Good luck on your deployment.
