Hello Everyone,


in our company we have a confluecne i version 5.4.3

Currently we are making upgrade in test environemtn to v. 7.10.1

Strange thing is that we have a reverse proxy via apache and when I am changing in Base URL "/confluence" on the end of IP Address confluence behave strangely is I cannot create a space and some macros are not woking.


has some of you had a similar problem after upgrade to Confluence 7.10.1?

I'm going to take a guess that you have forgotten to update the "Context" in the server.xml file.  A standard upgrade will overwrite it and make your system behave as you describe.

Could you give me a hint here? I only update path”” section with /confluence but what I must update in context section?

The path in the context must match the path in the base url and the path the proxy is serving up.

ok but i wrote only „path”which is /confluence so as you mentioned it must be also in context or only on path?

No, the path in the context must match the path in the base url and the path the proxy is serving up.

You need to compare all three to find out which one (or two) are wrong.

Hello, Unfortunatelly problem still exist to have total explanation:


Base url:

Server.xml context path: "/confluence"

Regarding hint which Nic gave to me, in server.xml context path should be also full  https as basic url? when I tried to do this confluence is not reachable.

In apache there is also full path like in base url.

No, the context should be just the sub-path that comes after the server domain.  If, for example, you are on , then 

I'm not sure what you are looking at in apache
