How to change URL?


We are new on Jira also Tomcat. We download and installed the jira on our web server (Windows Server 2012 R2) and it's working on it. We are using it on the server and reaching Jira on "http://localhost:8080".

On the server, we have our website on IIS. We want to know that, how can we reach the Jira on like "". We tried to run the "tomcat7w" to change the url but it's throwing error like below:

"The specified service does not wxist as an installed service.

Unable to open the service 'tomcat7'"

Find the server.xml in the Jira/Tomcat installation, open it up and look for Context="", replace with Context"/jira". The rest of the config will be done in IIS and your network DNS. (IIS has to be told that when people land on, it should proxy the information over to localhost:80/jira, and you need to ensure ourdomain.comresolves to that IIS server)
