Resolution:Invalid Affected version:


I have the following configuration:
Glassfish v2UR2
jruby 1.1.2
rails 2.0.2

I have a http-listener on port 443 with security enabled.
Applications like xwiki, spree (rails shopping system) and others work fine.
redmine is supposed to be the root application on the system.

I had it all running fine with redmine-0.7.0 and updated to 0.7-stable from svn (I am running revision 1651). Now https://mywebserver/ redirects to http://mywebserver/login which of course does not exist.
When I manage to login by changing urls by hand, website links work fine, but all forms, like creating issues etc, still try to send to a http address instead of a https address.
THis was nt happening with 0.7.0

Have you checked settings.yml after update?

  default: https

Maybe it was changed by svn update?

#2 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang about 14 years ago

Liwiusz, this setting has nothing to do with redirects.
It's only used to generate links in emails.

I had the same issue, I use apache forwarding to mongrel, where apache talks http to mongrel, this confuses mongrel into rewriting all urls to http.

For me the fix was adding this:

RequestHeader set X_FORWARDED_PROTO 'https'

In the apache config before the rewrite proxy rule

Hope this helps

Check #1145 for my Apache config.

I have the same problem.
I'm using nginx+modrails.
I've configured ONLY https and I get can't connect when redirected to http.
I've tried to put add_header X_FORWARDED_PROTO 'https'; for the vhost but nothing happens.
Redmine still redirects me to http:// instead of the https.
This only happens when redmine makes redirect_to. Forms are working.
I've tried to set
default: https
in lib/redmine/hook.rb but nothing happened. same thing.
any ideas how to achieve redirect_to to work with correct URI scheme?

#7 Updated by valqk valqk about 13 years ago

Also noticed that I get url rewritten even in return url (maybe because default scheme is http)

Just to clarify.
Correct nginx config is:

        location /redmine {
                proxy_pass http://backend;
                proxy_set_header  Host        $http_host;
                proxy_set_header  X-Forwarded-For  $remote_addr;
                proxy_set_header  X-Forwarded-Ssl on;
                proxy_set_header  X-Forwarded-Proto https;

X-Forwarded-Proto not X_Forwarded_Proto
