502 proxy error with reverse proxy using apache



I did everything in this article to try to enable SSL in my jira server installation:


I want the jira to be accessible with URL, so apache configuration looks like:


<VirtualHost *:80>
Redirect Permanent /

<VirtualHost *:443>
ProxyRequests Off
ProxyVia Off

<Proxy *>
Require all granted

SSLProxyEngine on
<Location />

SSLEngine ON
SSLCertificateFile mysslpath/cert.pem
SSLCertificateKeyFile mtsslpath/privkey.pem
SSLCertificateChainFile mysslpat/chain.pem


In server.xml I commented the default connector and uncommented the HTTPS proxy connector, so it looks like:

<Connector port="8080" relaxedPathChars="[]|" relaxedQueryChars="[]|{}^&#x5c;&#x60;&quot;&lt;&gt;"
maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" connectionTimeout="20000" enableLookups="false"
maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" protocol="HTTP/1.1" useBodyEncodingForURI="true" redirectPort="8443"
acceptCount="100" disableUploadTimeout="true" bindOnInit="false" secure="true" scheme="https"
proxyName="" proxyPort="443"/>


I restarted htttp and jira services, but when I try to access, I got the following error with 502 HTTP code.

Proxy Error

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /.

Reason: Error reading from remote server


If I access jira opens as usual, with some login/sesison issues (users are logged out immediatly after logging in).

What am I doing wrong?
