confluence rendering issues

I have confluence version 3.5.16.  I'm attempting to upgrade but before I do I'm trying to setup confluence so that it can be upgraded.  I have HTTPS and CAS authentication in place.  I was able to remove CAS authentication and the site still works fine.  I'm having trouble removing HTTPS settings.  The site is not rendering properly when I attempt to remove SSL.  most of the setup for the SSL is in apache and not tomcat.   it seems I'm missing a step.  maybe you can send me a list of all the steps to take removing SSL.



 changed this line in wiki.conf from

ProxyPass /confluence  ajp://localhost:8009/confluence/  retry=15


ProxyPass /confluence/  ajp://localhost:8009/confluence/  retry=15

I'm sure I removed the extra slash in testing and forgot about it.  but now the site renders correctly even under http instead of https.  it was working when I had configured https.  what I relief that one took a while to figure out.

I'm afraid there's very little we can tell you.  You have set up some SSL in your Apache server and, well, it's your setup, we don't know anything about it.

However, that is Apache - it's separate to Tomcat.  The Confluence part of this is to check what it is configured for.  If you go on to the server and visit "http://localhost:8090" (or whatever port you've configured it for), do you get a Confluence login page (you can try a simple curl or wget too, then read the html they download)?  If you get a block of text with ssl errors in it, then you've work to do in Tomcat to unpick that.  If you get a login page, then Confluence is fine and you need to concentrate on Apache.

Nic thank you for a quick suggestion.  is it recommended that I remove ssl in order to upgrade to version 5.0.3.  I know it is recommended to remove CAS and I was successful doing that part.  I didn't see documentation telling me to remove SSL in the upgrade steps, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Do you get a login page if you visit the server without going through apache, on a plain port based url?
