Installing Confluence on a Webserver with Plesk Administration


I want to install Confluence on a separate Webserver.

Unfortunately I dont find any documentation about this.

The documentations only affect to a standard Linux distribution.

Of course the webserver is also a Linux Server, but I dont have root access, and I dont have access to a console.

So how could I install it onto a webserver?

Tomcat, Java and a MySql Database ist installed.

Thank you.

only thing you need is root access to the servers shell.

Just install the binary then and configure the application to fit your needs.

create a vhost config and place it in (depends on your distribution) /etc/httpd/conf.d/

a sample config could look like:

<VirtualHost yourservername:80>

    ServerName yourservername
    ServerAlias oryourserveralias

    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On

<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
SSLProxyEngine On
ProxyRequests           Off
ProxyPreserveHost       On
ProxyPass           /       ajp://localhost:8010/
ProxyPassReverse    /       ajp://localhost:8010/

<Location />
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all


please note that this is for a configuration where confluence uses the ajp connector.

i installed confluence on a plesk server configured to use SSL.

i removed some SSL lines here cause there is no need to keep them right now.

reload the apache and you should have a running confluence

you're welcome.

please keep in mind that you cannot copy&paste this one. you need to adjust some lines


thank you very much! I will check it with the provider and try your suggestion.



now we have the problem more detailed specified. It seems that the Mysql Server is too old.

Now we have to wait a couple of days for the provider updating it.

I will comment again, when I got further informations.

Thank you



Confluence was not intended to be installed on this kind of scenario. You'll need root access to perform the instalation.If you want a completely "cloud" experiance, please consider Atlassian OnDemand services.

Hello Lucas,

thank you for your answer. But the answer ist not really satisfying. We invested a lot of money for the donwload-license, and now we could not use it....?

The on Demand licence is patently too expensive, because of this we choose the donwload licence.

If I could get root access on a console, is it then possible to install on the webserver?

Thank you

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
