Jira behind load-balancer and SSL accelerator


we are trying to get Jira running in the following setup:

The user is accessing an SSL accelerator on port 443. The connection redirected to a load balancer on port 80 which redirects the connect to a webserver on port 80.

We have configured the webserver the following way:

<VirtualHost XXXX:80>

DocumentRoot /fs1/www

ProxyRequests Off

ProxyPreserveHost On

ProxyPass /jira http://server1:9080/jira

ProxyPassReverse /jira http://server1:9080/jira

<Proxy *>

Order deny,allow

Allow from all


<Location />

Order allow,deny

Allow from all



The webserver proxies the connection jira running on a seperate application server on port 9080 with the following setting in the server.xml:

<Connector port="9080"















Wherein externalurl.net is the URL configured for the SSL accelerator.

We now have the problem that Jira is throwing Mismatched URL Scheme errors and the Dashboard is malfunctioning. This happens in IE8 and Firefox 25.

Does anyone have any idea if this configuration is possible or do we have to change the network infrastructure?


Best regards,
