Use a .htaccess file as a url redirect proxy to ip

Hi guys,

I run Jira-Software on a dedicated server in a docker container. I dont want my users to use the IP address of this server to access jira. Instead I want them to use a subdomain lets call it But for that I have to forward the subdomain to the server IP. For that I us an .htaccess file with the proxy flag, which works perfectly.
So a user types in the browser and the .htaccess proxy forwards the user to the IP, while in the browser the url is still displayed. Everything fine so far.

--- .htaccess ---

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule (.*)$ http://SERVER_IP:9990/$1 [P]


For some reason jira is very slow, but besides of that everything seems to work fine.
One problem I have is that jira logs this exception, which so far I now means something like it cannot reach itself over the url.

HealthCheck:thread-3 ERROR      [] An error occurred when performing the Gadget feed URL healthcheck Read timed out

In the /opt/atlassian/jira/server.xml I edited the Connector and added the following:
- proxyName=""
- proxyPort="443"
- scheme="https"

The questions I have are the following:
- Can I use a .htaccess file as proxy?
- Could the exception above be the reason why jira is so slow?
