is there an updated install how-to for confluence server 7.8.1 on centos 7 using postgresql? Edited

Hey everyone,

I'm a new confluence user and am looking for some help if possible. I'm specifically looking for a recent install guide on newest version of confluence that includes updated versioning of PostgreSQL. also would be great if it included converting the instance to running over https and changing the security constraints to redirect urls to https. all said and done i am looking to achieve being able to use a url like

I've managed to get the initial deployment completed. I've split things out to look like this

1 vm dedicated to confluence server 7.8.1

1 vm dedicated to postgresql 12

so far i have everything running using default http port 8090

I also have another vm deployed that i plan to use as a dedicated reverse proxy running nginx but need a little help with getting this part configured to work with confluence. I'm not sure if i have to change confluence ports to anything else or just build the reverse proxy, generate ssl self-signed cert on the proxy with something like openssl and then connect that to confluence? anyone have any experience with this sort of setup?

Depending on the load you are expecting long-term separated VM are a good idea. So we already can check mark this point.

A reverse proxy (nginx or Apache) is also a good idea, at least for terminating SSL connections (somewhat easier then to do it in Tomcat directly).

The last time we dealt with a new setup it was following the guide:

The instance is running fine since then. Were you following this guide or another one?
Is Confluence meanwhile reachable using SSL? If not, feel free to provide any details and somebody here might catch up regarding more detailed questions.


Thanks @Daniel Ebers

I ended up avoiding much of the manual setup and put my confluence server instance behind a Kemp load balancer to do all of the heavy lifting. so far this seems to be working out pretty good.
