Can't proxying multiple sites in same domain


I'm using Jira and confluence, and try to configure a reverse proxying(IIS). First I configure my Jira service by this Guide, and it worked. Then I try to configure my confluence service using the same guide, and changed server.xml/web.xml, but it's not working.

My Jira site is, and confluence should be I can visit my confluence site by http://localhost:8090/confluence, and can't visit from http://localhost/confluence. It gives me a 404 error.

I think this problem is relevant with my IIS URL rewite configuration. Currently it looks like this:


Both of these sites' maching parrtern is "(.*)". Should I change the matching parrtern? Or how to modify it?

Localhost is fine for testing a service is running, but it always means "this machine". 

Your tests on localhost are looking fine though - you've got Confluence on port 8090, context /confluence and you can see it there from localhost, but not on a different port.

Your next test should be to use the IIS interface - from another machine, try <ip address of server>:8090/confluence

Thanks Nic, I can visit demo:8090/confluence, but can’t visit demo/confluence.

 I think it’s cause by conflicting of URL rewrite since my Jira and confluence is running on the same server. Specifically, I think it’s relevant with my URL rewriting matching parrtern. Currently both Jira and confluence is (.*), and probably IIS can’t detect which request is for Jira and which is for confluence.

Basicly I want my IIS configure as rewrite to already worked), and rewrite to currently not worked).

Thanks again.

Yes, it must be the IIS settings. I can't pretend I know why it has to be so complex in IIS (It's two lines of config in Apache and one in Nginx), but yes, you will need to adjust the rewrites so they include the ports.
