FishEye HTTPS / SSL Web Server --> No HTTP Bind

Deleted user Dec 20, 2011

Is it possible to deactivate the "normal" HTTP WebServer for FishEye? Actually my (HTTPS-) SSL-FishEye-Instance is running on port 8080 and the normal HTTP-Instance is running on port 6060. Because i don't need the "unsave" HTTP-Instance i would like to deactivate it. I have testet it through simply deleting the HTTP-Port in the FishEye-Configuration but after that i got some errors and couldn't log in to the administrator area. Here some snippets from the error-log:

2011-12-21 19:28:11,349 ERROR [btpool0-37 ] org.mortbay.log org.mortbay.log.Slf4jLog-warn - EXCEPTION 
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: :///admin/

Hello osger,

Assuming you have already set up the SSL connector, try removing the XML tag for HTTP bind from your config.xml file directly:

<http bind=":6060"/>

Make sure to stop FishEye/Crucible before editing the config.xml file.

If that still doesn't work for you please open a support ticket at with the following data:

1. Go to Administration > Global Settings > Server > Debug Logging and Turn Debug Logging "ON".
2. Reproduce the problem.
3. Generate a Support Zip from the Administration menu (Administration >> System Settings >> Atlassian Support Tools >> Support Zip) and attach it to this ticket.

If you remove the entry from your config file by hand you will re-break your configuration every time you edit the server configuration to make a change as FishEye will write out the broken configuration file again.

I "solved" this problem on my end by giving the non-https bind configuration field a localhost value to bind to.

Was this every resolved? I'm having the same problem trying to disable HTTP.
