Hosting all services from a single port (8080)

I'm running my products from within a VM with tight control over all http ports (they're all blocked, except 8080). Is it possible to host my services like so:

myserver:8080/jira

myserver:8080/confluence

myserver:8080/...

I'm aware they can be configured to run on :80, but was wondering if the same would apply for 8080. Note that I can't run confluence from 8090 because it's blocked.

You can host more than one application on any sinle port even with a conext path. If you have JIRA running on default 8080 already then Confluence set to 8080 won't start because the port is already in use.

If you want to host all applications from one port then you'll need to run your applications behind a web proxy. A popular web proxy you should look into is Apache HTTP server. We have some documentation that help you guide a bit through the seutp of a web proxy server.

After getting JIRA setup, you'll need to setup the other applications in the same way. They will need to be started on different ports, but since you're running begind a web proxy, all traffic will be caught by the proxy server then forwarded to the intended locations.

What I did was create a new file in /etc/httpd/conf.d/atlassian.conf with content:

<IfModule mod_proxy_http.c>

    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On

    # Confluence
    ProxyPass /confluence http://localhost:8090/confluence
    ProxyPassReverse /confluence http://localhost:8090/confluence

    # JIRA
    ProxyPass /jira http://localhost:8080/jira
    ProxyPassReverse /jira http://localhost:8080/jira

</IfModule>
