I installed a JIRA 5.1.7 on our VM and tried to change the host name.
Right now the URL is: http://localhost:8900/
I changed the Base URL in General Configuration to something like this http://w2.jira.***.com/
I did restart the JIRA service, but i am not able to access it throught http://w2.jira.***.com/ (Prompt IIS Setting)
The http://localhost:8900/ is the only way I can browse JIRA.
This JIRA instance is installed on Windows Server 2008, and there is no IIS. What can we do to change the URL? I need more detail information.
Anyone can help? Thanks in advance.
You would need to configure IIS to forward a specific context (in this case jira) to your JIRA instance
You don't configure the hostname as such in JIRA, you need to ensure your network's DNS is correctly forwarding requests on the hostname you want, to your IIS server.
Disregard all this if you aren't using IIS, it just seemed you were from your comment RE: Prompt IIS Setting (Which I'm not sure what you mean by that :) )
Would configuring the Jira applicaiton with IIS be needed to accomplish having the site http://localhost:8080/ to be accesable by the internet??? Or can this be done just by modifying DNS settings.
By the way, if you create a dedicated VM you can just name the machine 'Jira' or such and the hostname will carry over to the app.
