- Atlassian Confluence 6.1.0
- NGINX Host SSL certificates are automatically imported into Confluence's JVM so Atlassian application links can easily be created
This container uses OpenJDK for its JVM and as such this unit is considered an unsupported platform by Atlassian.
Make sure you have a supported database available either as a container or standalone.
It is important that the value of your
NGINX_UNIT_HOSTS environment variable is set to a single value and doesn't
include wildcards or regular expressions as this value will be used by Confluence to determine the hostname.
It is highly recommended that you use container orchestration software such as Docker Compose when using this NGINX Host unit as several Docker containers are required for operation. This guide will assume that you are using Docker Compose. Additionally, we will use the official PostgreSQL Docker container for our database.
To begin, start with a basic
docker-compose.yml file as described in the
NGINX Host configuration guide. Then, add a
service for the database (named
db-confluence) and the NGINX Host Confluence unit (named
confluence: image: handcraftedbits/nginx-unit-confluence environment: - NGINX_UNIT_HOSTS=mysite.com - NGINX_URL_PREFIX=/confluence links: - db-confluence volumes: - data:/opt/container/shared - /home/me/confluence:/opt/data/confluence db-confluence: image: postgres environment: - POSTGRES_USER=user - POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password - POSTGRES_DB=confluence volumes: /home/me/db-confluence:/var/lib/postgresql/data
Observe the following:
- We create a link in
db-confluencein order to allow Confluence to connect to our database.
- We mount
/opt/data/confluenceusing the local directory
/home/me/confluence. This is the directory where Confluence stores its data.
- As with any other NGINX Host unit, we mount our data volume, in this case named
For more information on configuring the PostgreSQL container, consult its documentation.
Finally, we need to create a link in our NGINX Host container to the
confluence container in order to proxy
Confluence. Here is our final
version: "2.1" volumes: data: services: confluence: image: handcraftedbits/nginx-unit-confluence environment: - NGINX_UNIT_HOSTS=mysite.com - NGINX_URL_PREFIX=/confluence links: - db-confluence volumes: - data:/opt/container/shared - /home/me/confluence:/opt/data/confluence db-confluence: image: postgres environment: - POSTGRES_USER=user - POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password - POSTGRES_DB=confluence volumes: /home/me/db-confluence:/var/lib/postgresql/data proxy: image: handcraftedbits/nginx-host links: - confluence ports: - "443:443" volumes: - data:/opt/container/shared - /etc/letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt - /home/me/dhparam.pem:/etc/ssl/dhparam.pem
This will result in making a Confluence instance available at
Running the NGINX Host Confluence Unit
Assuming you are using Docker Compose, simply run
docker-compose up in the same directory as your
docker-compose.yml file. Otherwise, you will need to start each container with
docker run or a suitable
alternative, making sure to add the appropriate environment variables and volume references.
When configuring Confluence, be sure to select
PostgreSQL as your database,
db-confluence as the database hostname,
5432 as the database port if you configured your database according to the previous section.
Please see the NGINX Host documentation for information on the environment variables understood by this unit.
