Multiple Tomcat Container - Confluence and Jira on same Server?

Hello everybody,

I'd like to run Confluence and Jira on a powerful server. However, the documentation says that it is not recommended to run both in a single Tomcat container.

How do I separate both applications from each other? Unfortunately I didn't find anything for this.


Thanks in advance.

Hi Robert,

To run Confluence and Jira on a single server, you can install them using the default settings, and they will be installed separately, ie distinct Tomcat containers.

Consider installing a reverse proxy, such as nginx, so that end users can access http[s]:// and  http[s]://, instead of and 

The warning in the documentation is to avoid Tomcat experts performing any wizardry to reduce maintenance.

Hi Jimmy,

thank you very much for your detailed answer :)

Best regards
