Apache Server: /jira and /confluence with ProxyPass force over https

Hey atlassian friends,

i run jira and confluence on a server and use ProxyPass to route this via Apache to WWW:

<VirtualHost xx.xx.xx.xx:80>
ProxyPass /confluence http://localhost:8090/confluence
ProxyPassReverse /confluence http://localhost/confluence
ProxyPass /jira http://localhost:8090/jira
ProxyPassReverse //jira http://localhost:8090/jira

Now i got a certificate for ssl. I can access my website in general via https://... - this works now (through a <virtualhost xxxx:443>).

What i want to do now is, that every traffic for jira and confluence is delivered over https.

I though of a redirect rule with a pattern that locates /jira or /confluence in the url. How do i do this?

Hi Sebastian,

There are more than one way to do this redirection. See this doc for more details.


Hey Tiago,

thanks for your repley. Yes, i found also this side. This looks good here:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

But the problem is, that i'm not sure about the rule! If i unserstand this correctly than every traffic is redirected over https. But i also want to redirect everything where the URL is www.domain.com/jira or www.domain.com/confluence. I tried something like this from an example i found with google:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
RewriteRule *.(confluence|jira)/?$

But apache2ctl told me that the third line is wrong. I also tried to figured out in the rewrite docs (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/rewrite/intro.html) but i'm not sure whats wrong here...
