The best way to redirect old links from Jira to the new Jira server.


I was wondering if anyone has done this before in the past. I am planning on upgrading Jira this weekend. During the upgrade it will be moved to a new server and renamed.

Can anyone give me the best solution for routing the old jira links to the new server?

I've always done that with a rewrite or proxy in Apache. Assuming you're behind an Apache server of course.

If you're not behind apache you can still run one on the old host/port combination. Or get the old DNS entry pointed to the new server and have apache listening on the old port, then rewrite to the new port. Now would be a good time to incorporate apache or nginx into your new setup...

It's the easiest way, problem is you will need to keep the old jira running (unless you know how to knock up a java webapp). Make sure you point to a dummy database if you keep jira running.
