Add JIRA to Sub Domain


We recently purchase JIRA to start working on it, we still on the setup phase...

We requested the setup to be made by our hosting providers, and they installed it at the following link:

We asked them to make a sub domain for that (like but they told us with the following:


The application uses its very own web service and since you are already using the Apache web server for serving normal website requests (on port 80) it uses the alternative 8080 port. Unfortunately, it is not possible to have two programs/services listening on one and the same port.

While we can map your /dev folder in Apache using mod_proxy and forward all requests to it to the 8080th port, this will cause all sort of issues (i.e all requests coming from the server IP address instead of the real visitor IP address, which in turn will prevent proper detection of the remote user) and is thus not recommended setup.

If you have any other questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us!


Instead, they put it alternatively in an iFrame here ( but as they said also (Some JavaScript might also not be working due to the cross-site accessing of the page.)

My Question is, how can we install it on a sub domain without losing any functionality or something (without the need to put it on iFrame as they did for us),,, something like (

I have multple instances(development and production) of Jira on the same host. The key is unique port numbers. Each has their own instance of Apache.

Thanks a lot Norman :) That helped a lot ;)
