Process for setting up proxying from various ports to a web server


We are in the process of setting up Confluence, Crowd, Bamboo, Stash and configuring Crowd for authentication. We would like to redirect each port from our Tomcat server via a Web proxy (e.g., for Confluence we would want to redirect to, similarly with Jira, etc.). Authentication would then be done through Crowd.

First of all, how do we set up the ssl certificates for these apps? Secondly, how do we set up the Web proxy server to redirect the port requests through Tomcat (we are using Apace Web server on RHEL). Do you have any resources on-line that describe this process in-depth?

Thanks in advance!

Done! Got step by step response on how to proceed.

Hi Greg,

We have this doc explaining this configuration for Confluence and it is pretty much the same to the other applications. It have the instructions to configure it through mod_proxy and there is a section at the end explaining how to set it over ssl.

I hope this helps



Thanks much!
