Upgrade to JIRA 5.2.8 - Need Help with Base URL Change

I have modified the server.xml file to match the change I made in JIRA to the configuration base url. I NEED it to say:

http://newjira.rmls.com/jira to open the new JIRA program.

Below are the modifications I made to the server.xml file - and now I can''t open anything :(

<Connector port="8009" redirectPort="8443" enableLookups="false" protocol="AJP/1.3" URIEncoding="UTF-8"/>


<Engine defaultHost="newjira.rmls.com" name="Catalina">

<Host appBase="webapps" autoDeploy="true" name="" unpackWARs="true">

<Context docBase="${catalina.home}/atlassian-jira" path="/jira" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">

Can someone please point me in the right direction? I am new to JIRA! and we just upgraded from 4.0.1. to 5.2.8 - and I believe this is my last stumbling block. Thanks.

Base URL is located in System > General Configuration. However, have you mean to redirect from an IP address to be using domain name? If yes, would need some proxy

I am just taking the default configuration from localhost and needing to move it to: newjira.rmls.com/jira for the base url. I have already set the confguration in JIRA General config. Now I need to modify the server.xml. I am not moving from IP to domain name. Just renaming the base url from default to new name http://newjira.rmls.com/jira

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...
