I'm running JIRA 6.4 WAR running under tomcat. how can i modify the URL to remove the /jira ?

FROM here --> http://127.0.0.1:8080/jira/secure/Dashboard.jspa

TO HERE --> http://127.0.0.1:8080/secure/Dashboard.jspa

Find the <jira install>/conf/server.xml file and edit it, removing the context part of the connector (change "/jira" to "").

i did this but it's still the same. Perhaps because I'm accessing it by typing http://127.0.0.1:8080/jira

Maybe there are other things i need to configure?

Was able to resolve it by renaming war filename to ROOT along with some modifications on server.xml file.
