JIRA SSL Configuration

Ali Ozkan Feb 06, 2014

Hi. I'm trying to do SSL configuration on my local JIRA instance.

According to this guide, everything works perfect. When i type "localhost/jira" it redirects me to "" over https and when i type "localhost:8081/jira" it redirects me to my local JIRA over http.

However, when i change the proxy in the server.xml which is "" with the "localhost" i can't reach my local jira over https. I get the following error;

"Unable to connect.
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost."

I created certificates and did changes in apache/default ssl as well. However, i can't find my mistake. Any idea?

The proxyName argument in server.xml should be the name of the FQDN you're connecting to - is just an example in the server.xml. So if JIRA is hosted on please change the server.xml to reflect that. smile
