I have a problem with authentication from another pc. I've unpack crowd server,setting up mysql bd like in Manual , configure server.xml in apache-tomcat directory to set up proxyName and proxyPort for connector block(i make redirect from Nginx like JIRA or Stash).

Connection to authentication server failed. Please review the logs for more information.

It's because you've got the wrong connection settings.  The last error in the log is a giveaway:

  1. 2014-09-21 16:07:14,832 http-bio-8095-exec-19 ERROR [crowd.console.action.Login] Failed to connect to the authentication server, please check your crowd.properties
  2. org.springframework.security.authentication.AuthenticationServiceException: The application.name or application.password in the crowd.properties file does not match the password in Crowd.

where should a change it? i update password in 2 directories bin/client/conf folder and bin/crowd-webapp/WEB-INF/classes folder and get this error again((

Check the crowd.properties under CROWD_HOME (data directory) and make sure the application password in the crowd.properties file is correct.

Another thing to check would be the URL in the same file. It should be localhost or the ip address of the machine.

If you want to reset the password, try this:https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CROWDKB/Getting+InvalidAuthenticationException+in+the+Log+File+When+Logging+into+Crowd

what does it mean correct?i have password in crowd.properties but how i know that it is correct?

It means you've given it the wrong password. It does not match with what you have put in Crowd to allow it access. You need to check that what you've set up in Crowd matches what you've set in the file. Generally, you won't be able to read a password though, you'll need to change it to be 100% sure what is in there. I tend to use copy and paste to do this, so that I know I'm using the same source password every time.
