Configure URL of JIRA Server Edited

Hello -

We have Jira Server install on our server, and currently the url is: http://dev-svr1-uatp:80XX. 

Now, we would like to change that to

What do i need to do to accomplish that?

I have created the subdomain and pointed to the server. How do I do configure apache to bind the url?

I have also updated the Base URL with the new domain, but nothing happened.

Any help is appreciated.

How do you want to do this?

Most people do it with a proxy web server, but it is also possible to do it by changing the port for Tomcat (assuming, of course, nothing else is using port 80 on that server). 

See and

What's the easiest way to do it? Port? I would like to get it working quickly first.

I find the proxy method easier, but that may be because I do it a lot more than hacking Tomcat (and changing the Tomcat can lead you to more difficulties like needing to change permissions to allow it to use ports below 1024, upgrade "fun" etc)

Proxy it is, it sounds like a better solution. I'll work on this now.

Is it possible to achieve this with IIS? Never worked with Apache.

I have tried this and worked like a charm for configuring IIS with Jira.

Looking into SSL and FishEye now, hopefully it is straight forward. 


Thanks for the help Nic!

@Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Now I need to update FishEye the same way with IIS, are there any instructions for that? 

Sorry, I didn't get emails about your replies.

Yes, you can set up IIS as a proxy.  The Fisheye/IIS setup is, sadly, not documented the way Jira is, but, you should be able to do mostly the same.  You'll need to do the config of IIS in the same way.  Where I fall over is lack of experience of creating a connector for IIS in Fisheye (I've only ever used it behind Apache)
