Run a Different Website with SSL on the Same VPS of Confluence

Follow the instruction of Confluence, I have successfully installed the SSL for my confluence site on:

Then I need to setup another website on the same VPS (in my case: on the same VPS, which runs a plain http over port 8080.

Since tomcat is installed with Confluence, how can I modify the setup of the tomcat in Confluence to enable the SSL connection on port 8080?

The Tomcat configuration is under Step 3 on Running Confluence Over SSL or HTTPS. You may change the port from 8443 to 8080:

        <Connector port="8080"

You will need a reverse proxy in front of the server unless you want to use a URL with the port, like

Here are docs for two free proxies:

Proxying Atlassian server applications with Apache HTTP Server (mod_proxy_http) 

Running Confluence behind NGINX with SSL

It's fine for me to run the second website use a URL with the port.

Currently, in my server.xml contains two <Connector>

<Connector port="8080" 


<Connector port="8443"

Do you mean I should add another Connector behind 8443 with contains:

<Connector port="8080"

And use similar approach to generate .keystore file for the second website?
