Https connector for JIRA running on Ubuntu

I was unable to make https work :( followed this: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/running-jira-applications-over-ssl-or-https-861253906.html

 <Connector port="443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol"
              maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" SSLEnabled="true"
              maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25"
              enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true"
              acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true"
              clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" useBodyEncodingForURI="true"
              keyAlias="jira" keystoreFile="/var/atlassian/application-data/jira/jira.jks" keystorePass="password" keystoreType="JKS"/>

Anytime this connector is enabled java quits and wont start. I believe I have setup the keystore (using command line) correctly but how can I tell? Is there a way to run Portecle on the linux server?

You say "java quits and won't start", but that does not tell us what is not starting.  Tomcat or Jira?  (Tomcat is the application server, Jira the application)

As this is a Tomcat connector, it's likely that it is the Tomcat that is failing.  The log will tell you why - have a look in <jira install>/log/catalina.out for the errors.
