I would warmly recommend you to terminate the SSL at the apache, and simply only run HTTP on the application server, and forward the SSL/NON-SSL to internal NON-SSL like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAlias jira
    <Directory />
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    allow from all
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^/(.*)${REQUEST_URI} [R,L]
    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /
<VirtualHost *:443>
    ServerAlias jira
    SSLProxyEngine on
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^jira\.our\.fqdn\.goes\.here [NC]
    RewriteRule ^/(.*)${REQUEST_URI} [R,L]
    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /
    ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/jira_ssl_error_log
    MaxKeepAliveRequests 500
    KeepAlive On
    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /root/shared.cer
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /root/shared.key
    SSLProxyVerify none
    SSLProxyCheckPeerCN off
    SSLProxyCheckPeerName off


Reason you see a shared key is because we use alt_name configured SSL certs, allowing several tomcats applications to be hosted on the same server.

In server.xml you would only have one http port, 8081 in this case.

Hello Jonas,

Kindly help us in setting up  HTTPS over a Webex or a call as it very critical now. We are planning for Upgrade next month and we are running out of tinme.



I am getting this error in error_log:

When i did netstat, there is nothing running on 443 port. Can you please tell me if anything else is reason?

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
