redirect to wrong back_url behind Apache reverse proxy
I've configured my Apache proxy exactly as described in http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/HowTo_Install_Redmine_in_a_sub-URI#With-a-reverse-proxy but Redmine redirects to a wrong URL by removing the path "/redmine". Hence, I cannot login and use the system. It works well with the local domain.
That happens after migration from 1.4 to the latest version 2.2.2 and seem to be independent of the 'Settings->General->Host name and path'.
It does not help either, if I change the environment.rb and set any combination of Redmine::Utils::relative_url_root or ActionController::Base.relative_url_root.
I also tried to enable/disable the browsers referer options but it didn't help.
Rails 3.2.11 Ruby 1.9.3-p374 Redmine 2.2.2 r11293
Settings->General->Host name and path:
ProxyPass /redmine http://localserver:3000/ ProxyPassReverse /redmine http://localserver:3000/
Now, the requested URL

The internal web server was used and redmine was started with
./script/rails server -e production

This is mostly support request, neither a bug or feature request.
Configuring Redmine on a relative root is a bit tricky with Redmine 2.x and you have to define a scope for routes.
RedmineApp::Application.routes.default_scope = '/redmine' should help you, see #12102#note-1.

Just for the records:¶
Since I didn't get it to work with the internal Webrick server (even if I set
RedmineApp::Application.routes.default_scope), I switched to Thin and changed the configuration according to Teddy's comment (#12102-12) and with
config.asset_path = '/redmine%s'.
Then I gave Puma a try. Unfortunately, Puma does not support a
prefix parameter. Hence I changed the
config.ru according to #12102-13.
Now it works like a charm.
The wiki document HowTo_Install_Redmine_in_a_sub-URI whould be updated to Redmine 2.x configuration.

I had the same problem. To reproduce this:
- Sign in
- Click the sign out. This should produce a URL like this: http://domain.tld/login?back_url=http%253A%252F%252Fdomain.tld%252F
- Notice that the back_url is essentially escaped twice.
- Sign in again. You are now authenticated according to the logs but the redirect fails and you don't go anywhere
- Refreshing the page brings you to the default page (my_page_path)
A simple fix for this was to unescape twice the back url in ApplicationController::redirect_back_or_default. Change
back_url = params[:back_url].to_s
back_url = CGI.unescape(CGI.unescape(params[:back_url].to_s))
