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 : www.example.com 
confluence : www.example.com/wiki

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

When I try to go to https:www.example.com/wiki, i get a page not found exception

httpd.conf

ServerName example.com

<Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
</Proxy>

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"
               maxThreads="150"
               minSpareThreads="25"
               connectionTimeout="20000"
               enableLookups="false"
               maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
               protocol="HTTP/1.1"
               useBodyEncodingForURI="true"
               acceptCount="100"
               disableUploadTimeout="true"
               scheme="https"
               proxyName="example.com"
               proxyPort="443"
               secure="true"/>

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.

Mizan,

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

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

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

Also, make sure you have ProxyPreserveHost On

Cheers,

Lars

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.
