Some times when I navigate within Jira, or type in my jira URL (http://jira.example.com/) I will get an error that looks like it's due to a malform URL redirection (https://jira.example.comsecure/Dashboard.jspa). Note that there is a missing slash between ".com" and "secure". I have Apache2 sitting in front of Jira acting as a reverse proxy. Any ideas about the missing slash in the URL. I'm running Jira 5.2.5.
This seemed to only happen when I had my virtual host file for Confluence enabled; this was with Confluence 4.3. When I only had Jira's virtual host file enabled, I would not get this error. I ended up uninstalling Confluence 4.3, and thought I would just wait for Confluence 5.0 to come out and try it. I installed Confluence 5.0 and have its virtual host file enabled, and now I'm not getting the error. It could be coincidence, and the problem was something else, but if anyone else is getting the same error, and have a similar setup, you might want to try installing version 5 of Confluence.
I can't test whether this happens without the reverse proxy at the moment; I'm not on the private network, and the firewall would prevent me from hitting Jira directly. The error could be in the Apache configuration, but I'm not sure what would be incorrect. Here's the virtual host file:
Redirect permanent / https://jira.example.com/
Allow from all
SSLCertificateFile <path to cert>
SSLCertificateKeyFile <path to key>
ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/<br< a="">> ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/
I'm having the same problem, jira works fine if accessed via localhost:8080. But if I try to acces via a reverse proxy http://jira.example.com or https://jira.example.com (all http is redirected to https) I get an error saying that jira.example.comsecure could not be reached. thsi is very strange as this only started after updating jira from 5.1.6 to 5.2.7
I'm not having this problem any longer, but from what I can remember, I would only get this error when I also had my virtual host enabled for Confluence 4.3. In this case I would get the malformed URL for both Jira (5.2) and Confluence. Since then I have installed Confluence 5.0, and it's working fine. I don't know if it was an issue with my virtual host files that have since been fixed, or an issue with the two running together. If you have another virtual host file for Confluence, you might try to disable it as part of trouble-shooting.
Sorry to reactivate a cold thread.
I had the same problem tonight.
What put me on the trail is "http is redirected to https". I have the same configuration.
Hence you should had a trailing slash on you r http to https redirection :
Redirect / https://jira.myhost.fr/
Hope this helps anyone having the same issue.
