Jira issue while starting up after importing self signed Certificate

Change: Created and upload a self signed certificate into Jira to enable HTTPS

i now get the following error

Setup: Tomcat is misconfigured

The server.xml file is missing parameters needed by Jira to handle requests that contain special characters.

 

I followed the link 

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/changing-server-xml-to-handle-requests-with-special-characters-958453799.html

 

This solution is already in the server-xml file

Have you updated all the connectors?

Thanks,  I am pretty sure I updated the file and its connectors. I could be wrong never done this before. Attaching the contents of the file maybe you can point out if I did something wrong.

You used invalid path.

 

Instead of

 

keystoreFile="C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\JiraIS"

 

you should use something like this:

 

keystoreFile="C:/Program Files/Atlassian/JIRA/JiraIS"

Hi @Jorge Trujillo , it looks like you have an issue with special characters in the Connector tag.

Double check the value of the string and make sure there is no missing " or possibly escape the special chars.

Thanks for the update I am pretty sure I update the file and its not missing anything could be wrong never done this before. Attaching the contents of the file maybe you can point out if i did something wrong.
