Hi Experts -

have just installed Jira & Confluence to be used within a SMB network.
both Jira and Confluence have been installed on a server (SRV03), and can be accessed internally from address: http://srv03:8080 (JIRA) and http://srv03:8090 (Confluence).

The aim is to be able to access these pages by typing in: http://jira or http://confluence
While it is possible to set a hosts file / CNAME to point jira to srv03, users still have to type in the port number.

Please advise how we can set both jira and confluence to port 80 on same server.

Thanks
Rob.

Hi Rob,

Could you please explain your architecture? do you want to access this hosts internally? from outisde? do you have a firewall? a dns server? the architecture should ne exposed to understand your needs and provide a best practice/way to make things run in better ways.

Best Regards.

Salah

Re: Architecture

Currently installed running MySQL - for internal use only initially, and after pilot run (3 months) is complete, external access will be considered.
However, I don't believe management will have any issues if confluence & jira are externally accessible, as long as content is secure.

Current server setup:

Modem -> VPN Firewall -> Server 2003 (Domain, File, Print, Confluence & Jira, DNS) -> Switch -> Clients.

I hope this answers your question..

Hi,

Your need is to access this from inetrnal network or external network? do you have public DNS? public IPs available?

as mentioned both internal and external access is required by completion.
we have 1 static public IP address available, and our DNS is managed by SRV03, which uses Forwarders to point to  OpenDNS.com as our public DNS and traffic filtering.

Hi,

In the case you have more Public IPs, you can use for each record an public IP and nat the this to internal one with ports mapping.

Since you have only one public IPn you can do this at server side:

if you have IIS: http://mvolo.com/blogs/serverside/pages/Redirect-requests-to-your-application-with-the-HttpRedirection-module.aspx

If you have appache: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html

Good luck.

Hi Salah,

Thanks for your post - very helpful!
However I am having difficulty accessing jira/confluence AT ALL from a different host on the same network.
Thus far, I have only tried accessing from the server directly that hosts jira/confluence; however a device on the same network, can ping SVR03, cannot access http://svr03:8090 or http://<ipaddress>:8090.

Any suggestions?

in-Domain access issue resolved, pinned down to a Windows Firewall issue.
Port 8080 was opened as per usual, however port 8090 was not.

If you have appache: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html

This is some highly technical documentation, and much of it does not relate to my question.

The solution to my question can be found here:
http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Using+Apache+with+mod_proxy

You are to simply use mod_proxy configurations under apache to point a request on http://whatever:80 to http://host.name:8090.
You will also need to download the mod_proxy template from here: http://apache.webthing.com/mod_proxy_html/.
