confluence and jira together ssl



I've installed Confluence 5.6.1 and JIRA 6.3.4 on the same linux server (different tomcat instances) and this went fine.

I've them configured Confluence over SSL, using SSLPort=8443 and ConfluencePort=8090,this went fine as well ( redirects to )

I was now trying to configure JIRA over SSL, using SSLPort=8483 and JiraPort=8080 but whenever I try to access instead of redirecting to it redirects to (???) 

Can anyone please advise what am I doing wrong?


/opt/jira/conf/server.xml : 

<Connector port="8483" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol"

              maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" SSLEnabled="true"

              maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25"

              enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true"

              acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true"

              clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" useBodyEncodingForURI="true" keystoreFile="/home/jira/.keystore" keystorePass="(removed!)" keyAlias="tomcat"/>
















Thanks in advance.

Do yourself a favour and terminate SSL at an nginx or apache reverse proxy (nginx is better)

That way, at upgrade time, you don't have to muck with SSL at all

If you set JIRA and Confluence to listen on different ports on the localhost there is no way to bypass the proxy.  

This is a good starting point


Hello David, Thank you for your advice. I'll implement this in the next couple of days. Many Thanks, Antonio
