Configure Crowd behind Apache

Hi,

I've setup crowd behind apache to avoid to use 8095 port, ...

Works great but using crowd.acme.com I go to crowd setup page instead of crowd.acme.com/crowd

My Apache config :
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
ServerName crowd.acme.com
<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
</Proxy>
ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyPass / http://crowd.acme.com:8095/
ProxyPassReverse / http://crowd.acme.com:8095/
ErrorLog $

{APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
LogLevel warn
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

</VirtualHost>

I didn't tune crowd server.xml.

How to manage that ?

Thank you

No didn't work, got some Tomcat errors.

Finaly

I changed crowd HOME : /atlassian-crowd/apache-tomcat/webapps/ROOT/index.html

To add :

<script language="javascript">
window.location.href = "http://crowd.acme.com/crowd"
</script>

I had a similar issue and found this to be the only thing that worked. To be clear, you need to add that html code inside the <head>, and you can leave everything else as is <head> <title>Atlassian Crowd - Identity management for web apps</title> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="images/favicon.ico"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="crowd/console/setup/aui/aui/css/aui.css"> <script language="javascript"> window.location.href = "http://<DNSname>/crowd"; </script> <script src="crowd/console/setup/aui/aui/js/aui-all.js"></script> <style> .aui-header .aui-header-logo-atlassian .aui-header-logo-device { background-image: url("images/atlassian_logo_text_white_x2.png"); width: 112px; } </style> </head>

Hi Julien,

What happens if you set apache like this?

ProxyPass / http://crowd.acme.com:8095/crowd
ProxyPassReverse / http://crowd.acme.com:8095/crowd

Hello Tiago,

I can do that but I block :8095 access to use only the reverseproxy.

I want to use :80 for all Atlassian Tools instead to let open all the port.

Maybe I can use instead :

Hi Julien,

I usually use this vhost pattern:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    #Creating virtual host
    ServerAdmin admin@domain.com
    ServerName crowd.example.com
    ServerAlias crowd.example.com
    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    <Proxy *>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
    </Proxy>
    ProxyPass / http://localhost:8095/crowd
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8095/crowd   
<Location />
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Location>
    ErrorLog /path/to/example.com-error.log
    LogLevel debug
    CustomLog /path/to/example.com-access.log combined
</VirtualHost>
 
I use this like a individual vhost to have more detailed logs if I need.
Please give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Hi Ceslo,

I have the same issue and I tried your solution. What I got is this:

HTTP Status 404 - /crowdcrowd/

type Status report

message /crowdcrowd/

description The requested resource is not available.

If I remove /crowd from the VirtualHost then it works except that I get to the setup page.

Any other ideas?

Hi guys,

 

Any chance that somebody found a solution for this one? I have the exact same issue, redirected to /crowdcrowd/ with a 404

Thanks

Follow up to comment by Mircea above:

I used the values:

ProxyPass / http://localhost:8095/crowd/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8095/crowd/

 

Here's the error I get with that option:

crowd_error.JPG

If the context path is crowd and you want to set up with https then you do it this way:

# Not sure if the backend needs these http headers set, but I do it, just in case
RequestHeader set X-Forwarded-Proto "https"
RequestHeader set X-Forwarded-Port "443"
#.......
Redirect / /crowd
&lt;Proxy *&gt;
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
&lt;/Proxy&gt;
ProxyPass /crowd http://localhost:8095/crowd connectiontimeout=300 timeout=300
ProxyPassReverse /crowd/ http://localhost.com:8095/crowd/

Hope this helps for anyone struggling with both http and https
