I'm trying to run Jira on a ISS 7.5. We use Boncode between IIS and Tomcat.

After starting the application, i get an 404 Error. I think, the URL "secure/SetupDatabase!default.jspa" can't be served by IIS. Maybe it needs a kind of an URL rewriting.

Any Idea how to solve this?

EDIT: I have the same issue running Jira with Tomcat only.

Jira starts up perfectly. The log file is looking good, no errors so far. The log file ends with the message, that i can use Jira now.

My configuration:

- Jira will be available at the adress

- i created a host in the file server.xml of tomcat. The appbase points to the file root of the application (Jira). As many other's do, my Jira installation is located outside of the webapps directory of tomcat. E.g. D:/WebSpaces/wwwroot/ so, appbase points to this folder.

- i created a context under ../conf/Catalina/ having the file ROOT.xml.
- The context file root.xml contains path="" and docBase which points to the file root of Jira too.

From my point of view, this looks okay. To proof if the http server finds somes stuff, i called an image from the jira's app folder with the browser, which worked.

I have already an existing database, which was created running Jira withour having a host and a context. I called Jira directly at http://ServerName:8080 .Therefore i changed the new URL directly in the database.

Actually, i'm a bit lost...

Many thanks

The mostly used solution is mod_proxy on Apache HTTPD server or NGNIX as reverse proxy. I believe that Microsoft provides an equivalent solution for IIS.
