We're merging our JIRA instance into another instance within our department. I'd like to support our current URL for awhile by putting a redirect page at the launch point, but I'm not savvy to the way this is working on my setup.
I'm running JIRA 5.2.2 on a Windows 2003 server with Apache 2.2 as the web server. If anyone can help me out, I'd like to know how I can figure out how the URL for the site maps to some actual physical directory on the server. I'm sure the information is there somewhere, but this is an installation that's been passed down for several people, and the person who set it up originally is long gone from the organization.
I'm going to continue scanning the JIRA documentation and the server itself to try to puzzle this out, but if anyone has the knowledge and can provide it immediatley, that would be great. Thanks in advance for any help.
Judging by your description, I believe the easiest way to redirect the URL is by creating a DNS rule pointing to the IP address of the new instance, you would still be able to access your old instance through the IP of the old server.
However, if it's feasible in your case, Apache's configurations are stored into a file called
httpd.conf, you can find more detals about the settings within this file here.
I hope this helps.
