want to access jira via webserver/jira

I want to be able to access JIRA via the url webserver/jira, no 8080 port. This is similar to how we have our wiki (webserver/mediawiki) but I cant figure out how to do that since Im not familiar with tomcat at all. We are running apache web server 2.2.

If you've got Apache, the easiest trick is to simply use Apache as a proxy.  See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Integrating+JIRA+with+Apache

Going through that:

<!-- Apache Proxy Connector -->
        <Connector acceptCount="100" connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true" enableLookups="false" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1" redirectPort="8443" useBodyEncodingForURI="true" 
                    proxyName="jira.hprcc0.unl.edu" proxyPort="80"/>
    <!-- Standard HTTP Connector -->
        <Connector acceptCount="100" connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true" enableLookups="false" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" port="8081" protocol="HTTP/1.1" redirectPort="8443" useBodyEncodingForURI="true"/>
 
<Engine name="Catalina" defaultHost="localhost">
            <Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true">
                <Context path="/jira" docBase="${catalina.home}/atlassian-jira" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">

                    <Resource name="UserTransaction" auth="Container" type="javax.transaction.UserTransaction"
                              factory="org.objectweb.jotm.UserTransactionFactory" jotm.timeout="60"/>
                    <Manager pathname=""/>
                </Context>

I get a 404 Not Found (or a timeout) error when trying: hprcc0.unl.edu:8081/JIRA

 

Note: we do not own unl.edu but we can possible get a url similar to jira.unl.edu, but I'm trying to avoid that.

 

 

You need to have a resolvable name to publish your Jira on. You said you wanted webserver/jira so I assumed you'd put that in.
