Dashboard Diagnostics: Mismatched URL Hostname

I'm hoping somebody can help me with the following -

We get the error below if JIRA is accessed at and the system dashboard fails to render.

Dashboard Diagnostics: Mismatched URL Hostname
JIRA is reporting that it is running on the hostname 'jira.companyname.local', which does not match the hostname used to run these diagnostics, ''.
This is known to cause JIRA to construct URLs using the incorrect hostname, which will result in errors in the dashboard, among other issues.

However if users try to access jira at the redirect works properly and resolves to http:jira.companyname.local


snippet from server.xml -

<Service name="Catalina">
<Connector port="8080"


Snippet from Apache httpd.conf -

ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPreserveHost On

<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
<VirtualHost *:80>
ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/ timeout=600
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/

<VirtualHost *:81>
<Location /server-status>
SetHandler server-status
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from


Why am i going wrong with this?


Many thanks

Try adding:

ServerName jira.companyname.local


to your httpd.conf first.  Also, don't forget:

# Put/uncomment this after the other LoadModule directives
LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/mod_proxy_connect.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so
LoadModule proxy_ajp_module modules/mod_proxy_ajp.so


at the top of the httpd.conf file.  Restart Apache and try again.  If that doesn't work restart Jira, then Apache again and try.  Our server.xml file does not have:


And the proxy works fine.
