Upgrade Jira 7.2.10 to 7.3.0

Hello, we wanted upgrade our Jira Software but when we have upgraded it at the last version 7.4.2, impossible to start the service when we use the port 443 with a certificat. 

So we have restored our server at the version 7.2.6 to install one by one the updates. When we have install the version 7.3.0, impossible to start the service with the port 443 with certificate. 


What is the change between the version 7.2.9 and 7.3.0 ? 

Thank you.

Best regards.

Hi Christophe,

There is a known issue that you can find at JRASERVER-63734.  Take a look at your configuration and see if you're running into this bug:


Tomcat crashes on startup when JIRA is configured for SSL using protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol" in server.xml.

  • Connector org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol was removed in Tomcat 8.5


  • JIRA 7.3/Tomcat 8.5.6 installed with SSL per our documentation Running JIRA applications over SSL or HTTPS

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure JIRA with SSL
  2.     protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol" set in server.xml as per recommended configuration


Modify JIRA_INSTALL/conf/server.xml. Change the protocol on your HTTPS connector to: protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol"

  • If you do not use the HTTP Connector but use the AJP Connector instead, use the AJP NIO protocol instead.
    • The AJP connector is: protocol="org.apache.coyote.ajp.AjpNioProtocol"

Refer to Upgrade notes for 7.3 for instructions. See Running JIRA applications over SSL.

See Running JIRA applications over SSL or HTTPS for full directions on running JIRA over SSL or HTTPS.
