Which guide are you following? Also, the problem of the stylesheets not showing up might have to do with a wrongly configured base url, be sure that this is set to the new https address. Can you also provide your apache configuration file? Thanks!

This is the .conf file in Apache

LoadModule ssl_module modules/

Listen 443

<virtualhost *:443>

# ServerAdmin


ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/ssl-error.log

LogLevel warn

CustomLog /var/log/httpd/ssl-access.log combined

ServerSignature On

SSLEngine On

SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/ssl.crt/

SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/ssl.key/

SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/httpd/ssl.crt/ca.crt

SSLProxyEngine on

<proxy *>

Allow from all


ProxyRequests Off

ProxyPreserveHost On

ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/jirasup1-80

ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/jirasup1-80</em<>>


It seems that your <Connector> entry in conf/server.xml entry is broken.

Here is what works for me:

- use the default server.xml file and uncomment the second <Connector> entry (the one with AJP)

- in your httpd.conf and httpd-ssl.conf, add

ProxyPass        /           ajp://localhost:8009/
ProxyPassReverse /           ajp://localhost:8009/

This will probably also work with the http protocol instead ajp, to do that, use http://... instead of ajp:// and the 8080 port number.

Hi Dennis this is mine .conf file of apache


ProxyPass         /jirasup1-80   http://localhost:8080/jirasup1-80  

ProxyPassReverse  /jirasup1-80   http://localhost:8080/jirasup1-80

if i use

ProxyPass /jirasup1-80 http://localhost:8080/jirasup1-80
ProxyPassReverse /jirasup1-80 http://localhost:8080/jirasup1-80
then i get the error 404

The requested URL /secure/Dashboard.jspa was not found on this server.

<address>Apache/2.2.15 (CentOS) Server at Port 443</address>

Both left and right path / url must be the same and must match the path from your base url in JIRA and also the path attribute from your server.xml which is not the case.

Just try the ajp configuration a try, it should work right away.
