Error creating project, XSRF check failed



Ive just installed JIRA and Im getting this error 'Error creating project, XSRF check failed' when creating projects.  Ive tried every answer I can find by searching and googling the error but Im getting nowhere.  Im using apache mod_proxy to proxy requests to our server over to https.  

Ive tried this but not sure how to Ensure that all JIRA's header are not blocked?? - this is already set correctly according to my file when I check it?? 

Be great if you could help me resolve this issue.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Andrew,

Do you have a proxy in your network? Did you try adding the below parameters?

proxyName="" proxyPort="443" scheme="https"


Where do you enter these parameters? Thanks

This worked for me - I was using a reverse Proxy on a front-end apache server, and had the wrong host name on the JIRA server (JIRA_HOME/conf/server.xml, in the <Connector> tag).

@Matt Chistethank you Matt!
