Forward domain to JIRA IP works, but not with port 8080 added

I have Jira running on 123.123.123.123:8080 (example) but I don't want use this for communication.

I made a subdomain (jira.companyname.com) and I can forward it to the IP above, using Plesk.

However, I cannot add the port 8080.

The server is dedicated and hosting around 30 websites. I installed Jira logged in through remote desktop on the windows server and it is installed in c:\atlassian. Therefore I cannot point a subdomain to a 'ftp' folder like DOMAIN.com/jira.

Anyone?

Or you could simply install apache on the maching running jira an create the following virtual host:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName jira.companyname.com
    RedirectPermanent / http://123.123.123.123:8080/
</VirtualHost>

That's how we did it...

Hi Maarten,

To resolve this issue you should install a proxy in front of the instance to redirect the traffic to Tomcat. You can do this by following the instructions in this document: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Integrating+JIRA+with+Apache

All the best,
John
