SSL proxy for jira and confluence applications on same domain (jira without context path)

Mizan Community Champion Jul 04, 2017

I have jira and confluence running on separate tomcat on the same server machine

jira : 
confluence :

I have made the configuration and SSL works for jira but not for confluence.

When I try to go to, i get a page not found exception



<Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

SSLEngine               On

SSLCertificateFile      /etc/ssl/certs/mydomain_com_with_chain.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile   /etc/ssl/private/mydomain_com.key

ProxyPass               /       http://myserver:8081/
ProxyPassReverse        /       http://myserver:8081/

ProxyPass               /wiki       http://myserver:8082/wiki
ProxyPassReverse        /wiki       http://myserver:8082/wiki


The server.xml configuration is correct with the connector having proxy parameters

 <Connector port="8081"

Can someone please point out the problem here . I suspect it is because jira does not have a context path. However, I cannot have a context path for jira. Any suggestions highly appreciated.

What if you add a proxy for /wiki in before /

ProxyPass /wiki http://myserver:8082/wiki
ProxyPassReverse /wiki http://myserver:8082/wiki

/ http://myserver:8081/
ProxyPassReverse / http://myserver:8081/

Also, make sure you have ProxyPreserveHost On

Hi Lars,

Thanks for your response.

Unfortunately, this does not help . I made the changes and restarted apache.

I am checking the URL in Chrome incognito mode

Hi Lars,

Your answer was correct, I had not removed my old configuration was being included from a different file.

However, Confluence now shows us a different view. Do you know how this can be solved.
