Setting up Apache and Confluence

Please can you explain how i set up confluence so that i can redirect users automatically to avoid them having to use the port number at the end of the url, i.e

The end user submits the following url, www.demo.site.com/confluence and it redirects to www.demo.site.com:8090/confluence.

I am getting lost on the configuration.

You will need to set the apache internal proxy and then create a configuration file that handles the redirection for requests.

<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
</Proxy>
 
ProxyRequests       Off
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyPass           /confluence       http://localhost:8088/confluence
ProxyPassReverse    /confluence       http://localhost:8088/confluence

So if your website is www.demo.site.com then you should access it using www.demo.site.com/confluence. Please make sure you have the same configuration on the Confluence Administration page other wise you could encounter link issues.
