Installed working...created users...now they can't connect...the base url matches..but no joy.. error is webpage is not available...I must have missed something in the configuration...any quick ideas?
You don't deploy a WAR for Apache, you create a WAR for Tomcat. Apache is usually used as a front end to do things like clever urls, relocation, ssl and so on, but you don't need it for simple one-offs like you are talking about.
To run Jira with SSL (and no need for Apache), see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Running+JIRA+over+SSL+or+HTTPS
If there are other services to run, corporate networks and other things, you may decide you do want Apache, but for a simple setup, you don't need it.
Just changing the baseUrl won't make JIRA accessible in that URL. You will have to configure JIRA to be accessible in that URL.
