The following pages contain information on integrating JIRA with a web server.


  1. This is useless - you support two aging, non-Agile applications, and nothing that actual Agile development houses use.  How about actually spending 10-15 minutes to work out what it takes to get this working with NGINX or even lighttpd.  Not supporting NGINX and supporting IIS is like saying we're better off using those vacuum tubes over solid state, because it's what we know...

  2. Following setup for nginx worked for me

    Add following to your virtual.conf file for nginix and restart ngnix. Then you can access JIRA via

    server {


        server_name; # e.g. where jira is a subdomain

        access_log /var/log/nginx/subdomain.log; 

        location / {

            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

            proxy_set_header HOST $http_host;

            proxy_set_header X-NginX-Proxy true;

            proxy_pass; # put correct port number where your JIRA points to

            proxy_redirect off;
