Question about article "Configuring Apache Reverse Proxy Using the AJP Protocol"


sorry for the maybe stupid question, but I'm following the steps of

And I have no idea, what to do at Step 2.2:

"Backup the existing site or create a new one. Creating a new site is not covered within this documentation (copying the default should be sufficient)."

What site? Before there isn't mentioned any site.

I think it refers to sites-available. 

Sites-avaliable refers to your config file. :)



FYI: Sites-avaliable is used on debian/ubuntu servers, but not on CentOS/Redhat.. 

Thank you. I'm working on a ubuntu server.

But why AJP if I may ask? 

If you are having trouble configuring a proxy in front of JIRA HTTP/HTTPS then I`m sure we are may here that can help with that too (instead) ;)

A friend mentioned AJP. Are there solutions that are easier (especially for a newbie)?

Simply proxypass to the jira http or https port. 

You may need to add proxyPort proxyName scheme and secure to server.xml 

We have some documentation on the topic at our site.
