JIRA and Confluence on same server, can only access JIRA through browser... Edited


My name is Markus Fredén, I appreciate you taking time reading this! 

The problem I have is that I cannot access Confluence through the browser using my domain + context path (, I can only access it via lan IP + port. However, I can access JIRA through (


I get the 404 skull;

Oops, you've found a dead link.



This is what I'm using;

Ubuntu Server v18.04

PosqreSQL v9.4.14

Java v1.8.0_144

Apache v2.4.25

JIRA Software v7.3.4

Confluence v6.3.3


Port 80 is allowed through router fw and DNS settings are in place. And for what it's worth I did not have to forward any ports for JIRA (e.g. 8080).

ufw is off.

proxy_http module enabled:

2enmod proxy_http

Set context path and also added this:..

scheme="http" my confluence server.xml

<Server port="8000" shutdown="SHUTDOWN" debug="0">
<Service name="Tomcat-Standalone">
<Connector port="8090" connectionTimeout="20000" redirectPort="8443" maxThreads="48" minSpareThreads="10" enableLookups="false" acceptCount="10" debug="0" URIEncoding="UTF-8" proxyName="" proxyPort="80" scheme="http" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol" />

<Engine name="Standalone" defaultHost="localhost" debug="0">

<Host name="localhost" debug="0" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="false" startStopThreads="4">
<Context path="/confluence" docBase="../confluence" debug="0" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">
<!-- Logger is deprecated in Tomcat 5.5. Logging configuration for Confluence is specified in confluence/WEB-INF/classes/ -->
<Manager pathname="" />
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.StuckThreadDetectionValve" threshold="60" />

<Context path="${confluence.context.path}/synchrony-proxy" docBase="../synchrony-proxy" debug="0" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.StuckThreadDetectionValve" threshold="60" />



This is my Apache site conf (/etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf):

<VirtualHost *:80>
# The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
# the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
# redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
# specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
# match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
# value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
# However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.

ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/html

ProxyRequests Off
ProxyVia Off
ProxyPreserveHost On

<Proxy *>
Require all granted

ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/
ProxyPassReverse /

ProxyPass /confluence http://localhost:8090/confluence
ProxyPassReverse /confluence

# Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
# error, crit, alert, emerg.
# It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
# modules, e.g.
#LogLevel info ssl:warn

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

# For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
# enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
# include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
# following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
# after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
#Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf


Also tried adding a new apache site conf like this (With same value as in 000-default);

a2dissite 000-default
vi /etc/apache2/sites-available/new-site.conf
a2ensite new-site.conf


What could I have missed? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Best regards,

Markus Fredén

Hi Markus,

Note: this might not answer your question but just provides a recommendation :)

Please note we do not recommend running JIRA and Confluence together on the same server. Refer to the doc at

Thank you


I actually got this working in another thread that I posted because I thought that this one didn't get posted.
