We'd like to have a similar page set up like answers.atlassian.com using Confluence Questions.
The requirements are:
Well, that's it. Is this possible? What do I need to do to have a setup like that?
Thanks for the answer.
A simple url redirect would be, well, not the desired solution.
Is it possible to setup some Apache magic maybe (or something similar) to serve /questions on a different domain? I'm also fine with the services being xy.com/wiki and xy.com/answers if this makes it easier.
There is no problem in using Apache as a proxy and whatever domain you wish (I believe it is not fully supported meaning if you have problems concerning that part of the setup, you may get support, but it is not guaranteed). Confluence uses a server base url (https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf510/configuring-the-server-base-url-829078159.html) which might cause problems if you intend to serve the same instance from different urls.
That being said, here's a sample Apache configuration so you can find out by yourself. I've changed and removed a lot of lines, so treat this only as an example:
<VirtualHost APACHE_IP:80> ServerName answers.domain.com ErrorLog "/var/log/apache2/answers_error.log" TransferLog "/var/log/apache2/answers_access.log" ProxyTimeout 30 ProxyRequests Off ProxyPreserveHost On <Location /> Order allow,deny Allow from all ProxyPass http://CONFLUENCE_IP:8090 ttl=5 timeout=300 retry=0 ProxyPassReverse http://CONFLUENCE_IP:8090 </Location> </VirtualHost>
Proxying to /questions is something I don't know how to solve since css, js and other files seem to be fetched relative to the context path provided in the server.xml and not the full Base URL.
PS. I personally use AJP instead of HTTP for the proxy https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/configuring-apache-reverse-proxy-using-the-ajp-protocol-802593042.html.
