automatically redirect old Jirs URL to new Jira URL


i replaced my old Jira server (syssrv02) to new Jira server (syssrv03) i need that all the users will redirect to new URL automatically , do you have any ideas ?

http://syssrv02/jira redirect to http://syssrv03/jira

i can't to this redirect via DNS because the old Jira server can't remove from the domain.

Run apache on the old server on the same port, then use something like this:

## JIRA continuity
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName server2
    Redirect permanent /jira http://server3/jira/

thanks i will check it

Hi Shiomi,

Perhaps some of our documentations on running JIRA with Apache can help :

* Integrating JIRA with Apache

* Configuring Apache Reverse Proxy Using the AJP Protocol

I would be very helpfull to provide a TomCat specific solution as in some cases we cannot rely on proxies in front of jira.

You could leave the old jira running (with local db) and modify urlrewrite.xml. But yes it could be helpful if Atlassian documented the exact steps. In practice though personally I think it's better to take the old jira down.
