JIRA+Confluence+Crowd (on same VM Guest) behind apache mod_proxy(VM Host) issues

So I'll start of with I have confluence working perfectly at the moment, but I can't seem to get JIRA or Crowd to work (Catalina vs coyote??).

Basic Setup (Note I am not bridging to my guests I am routing, I have public IP's for them due to MAC issues with my hoster)

Internet>VM Host(Apache+Firewall)>VM Guest(Crowd,JIRA,Confluence)

All my base urls are set up, cjc.domain.org:8###/(jira confluence crowd) - Check the Apache Config

I've been messing with this for a few days and hit a wall, any pointers in the right direction would help, below is what I belive to be all the relevant configs.


Confluence server.xml snippet

<Server port="8000" shutdown="SHUTDOWN" debug="0">
    <Service name="Tomcat-Standalone">
        <Connector className="org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector" port="8090" minProcessors="5"
                   enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="10" debug="0" connectionTimeout="20000"
                   useURIValidationHack="false" URIEncoding="UTF-8"
                   proxyName="www.domain.org" proxyPort="80"/>

        <Engine name="Standalone" defaultHost="localhost" debug="0">

            <Host name="localhost" debug="0" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="false">

                <Context path="/confluence" docBase="../confluence" debug="0" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">
                    <!-- Logger is deprecated in Tomcat 5.5. Logging configuration for Confluence is specified in confluence/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties -->
                    <Manager pathname="" />


JIRA server.xml snippet

<Service name="Catalina">

        <Connector port="8080"


                   disableUploadTimeout="true" URIEncoding="UTF-8"
                   proxyName="www.domain.org" proxyPort="80"/>

<Engine name="Catalina" defaultHost="localhost">
            <Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true">

                <Context path="/jira" docBase="${catalina.home}/atlassian-jira" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">


                     Note, you no longer configure your database driver or connection parameters here.
                     These are configured through the UI during application setup.


                    <Resource name="UserTransaction" auth="Container" type="javax.transaction.UserTransaction"
                              factory="org.objectweb.jotm.UserTransactionFactory" jotm.timeout="60"/>
                    <Manager pathname=""/>


Crowd server.xml snippet

 <Connector acceptCount="100" connectionTimeout="20000" 
disableUploadTimeout="true" enableLookups="false"
maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxSpareThreads="75" maxThre$ proxyName="www.domain.org" proxyPort="80" />

What's the behavior? What do you mean when it doesn't work?

Assuming that www.domain.org in all three of your connectors resolves to your reverse proxy?

Anything in the apache error.log?

I'd turn on valve logging in JIRA/crowd to see if any request is making it over there.

I noticed that your first declaration is the Confluence one, and that's the one that is working. Have you tried re-ordering them to see if it follows?
