Hey all you smart people out there. I've got a functioning JIRA and Confluence environment using Apache and reverse proxy using SSL on Windows. We've been having a lot of problems with crashing, and I've been asked to move it to Linux. I'm not much of a Linux guru, but I do have my RHCSA so I can get around. I am struggling with this environment though, and I'm wondering if anyone could help out with some of the configs like the httpd.conf and server.xml.
Also, I'm hoping I can setup a good test environment with a self-signed cert, but I haven't gotten that working yet. Do you know if it's even possible in this config?
I have a basic JIRA install working but other than that I've been struggling.

Server.xml - no real change
"We've been having a lot of problems with crashing" - I'm not sure that if you move to Linux, things will be suddenly ok. Most probably, you are moving the problems, too
Edited: some explanations
True, it's worth looking into the causes of crashes before assuming that a change of OS is going to fix it. If the problem is an addon, you're not going to find much change (although it's Linux, so it's going to be easier to debug, fix and maintain...) On the bright side, Linux does tend to crash less than Windows, and a clean setup (rather than copying everything) is far more likely to land you with a stable system.
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
