You can host the apps in the same server without problems, but we do not recommend using the same tomcat for both apps.
Make sure you have plenty hardware specs for running both apps (RAM, disk space, external database) and you should be good.
Hi santosh, if your instances are public I'd like to recommend a proxy, such as apache, independent from running both JIRA and confluence on one server, too. https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/16387764/confluence-and-jira-security---diffie-hellman-for-tls
Yes, you can install both on the same machine. But...
They must have different hostnames or context path, such as:
A different port isn't enough. The reasons is, the authentication cookies are both JSESSIONID, so when you log into Confluence, you're logged out of JIRA and opposite. Prefer a different hostname.
You can't install both in the same Tomcat. If I remember well, deploying in your own Tomcat isn't supported anymore because people misconfigure it every time - You must use the versions of Tomcat embedded in the product (it's in the Confluence requirements)
I've found it easy to install them on the same machine on whatever port, then using Nginx. Nginx redirects port 443 (https), provides the SSL authentication, and chooses whether to redirect to JIRA or Confluence.
