I’m trying to setup Discourse behind my Apache reverse proxy but I can’t get it working properly with https.
I’ve had a lot of problems getting this far. Right now I have Discourse on a server and an Apache server infront of it acting as a reverse proxy. I had a lot of problems getting it to run behind a reverse proxy in the first place since Discourse always wanted to redirect to the hostname set in app.yaml.
Somehow I got it working now though but I get Mixed-content warnings in my browser.
I have a redirect in Apache from http to https so that is working fine. But Discourse is still serving some stuff over http and I can’t seem to figure out how to force it to change it to https.
For instance the favicon is served over http and I can’t figure out how to change this.
Can I make Discourse change all the links to https without making Discourse handle the https traffic?
I tried to set:
Header always set Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=63072000; includeSubDomains"
In Apache but it doesn’t seem to help.
force https flag in Discourse doesn’t help either, it will just break the site since it will just ignore everything over http.
What should I do to get rid of the mixed content?
