Can two JIRA instances running on a widows server both use https?

I have two JIRA instances running on a Windows server.  Currently one is using HTTPS and the other is using HTTP.  Is there a way to have both JIRA instances use HTTPS?  My understanding is that port 443 is required for HTTPS and the first instance is already using that port.  Is there a way to work around this?  Any help is appreciated.


JIRA 7.1.6

Hi Will,

You can run https on other ports than 443. You can simply setup jira#2 to run on 4443 or any other free port. You best friend now is SNI, server name indication. By creating a multiname (alt_name cert) one ssl cert can cover 10 domains, but like mentioned in the oneliner you are better of frontending it with a mod proxy (apache) that can separate traffic going to and to it's individual ports.

You will need to setup a web server and proxy the requests to individual JIRA instsances based on their domains / context paths. You cant do it just by using the Tomcats.
