Direct JIRA to subdomain on CentOS 6 server

I've successfully installed JIRA on my server and I can get it to load nicely at  I went through the steps at but it still won't load at get ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED).

Additionally, I am on Apache version 2.4.25 and here is my vhost.conf file contents (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is my actual IP address):

<VirtualHost XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:80>
  ProxyRequests Off
  ProxyVia Off
  RemoteIPHeader X-Forwarded-For
    Require all granted
  ProxyPass /
  ProxyPassReverse /

And here is my server.xml Connect code:

<Connector port="8080"

I'm getting an "ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" error on my server if I go to  If I go to, I can't go past my Agile boards in each of my project pages and my gadgets shows a DNS error message.

On top of that, if I go to, I can load my JIRA installation. and are the on the same line in my /etc/hosts/ file and is defined in my httpd.conf file, which says I shouldn't edit it, for all unbound IP addresses.

I've tried tweaking it so much, what else can I try to fix this?

I had to add a DNS entry for  I tried to do it manually in /etc/hosts and /named et cetera but it was easiest to just create the subdomain from my cPanel and then restart apache servers to grab that new subdomain and proxy it correctly.

I fixed this yesterday by replacing the "*" with my server's actual IP address ( but today it isn't working.  What would have changed?

Does nslookup resolve and to the right IP address?

It doesn't and I've added entries to /named/  Am I missing another step to adding a domain to the DNS listing?

Ok, you need to have the server (and other machines) be able to find the JIRA server via the urls you are using.  I can't really help you with your network setup.
