Bitbucket https works only partial Edited

Hello Everyone,


i am using git now since one year. i never cared for security as the system was so far entirly independent and not important to be secured.


never the less, this has changed, so i was working the last weekend on setting up some security aspects on my server.


one thing was to put my bitbucket and other software behind a nginx.


i created the certificates with letsencrypt and the other software is running without any issue.


my bitbucket address which was per default 


http://ip:port/dashboard, i placed behind a proxy with the explenation from here:

i also adjusted the Base-URL on the bitbucket config. 


but sadly, it only works partial.

so what works:

- i can join the bitbucket over the domain link which is https://git.<domain>.de

- i can see all repos and check them and say i wanna edit them

- i can pull repos over source tree

- i can approve merge requests


what does not work:

- the info about activity has an endless loading

- the info about notifications / warnings has an endless loading

- i can not merge merge requests, the system tells me there was a server error

- i can not request a merge request it gives me an server error


Note: the stuff which does not work, only doesnt works if i go over https://git.<domain>.de, if i go directly over the ip, it works without issues. :(



i created a sub domain entry for my nginx to forward the request to bitbucket which looks like this (probably there is also my mistake, but i don't know where :( )

upstream php-handler {
server unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;

server {
listen 80;
server_name git.<domain>.de;
# enforce https
rewrite ^ https://$server_name$request_uri permanent;

server {
listen 443 ssl;
server_name git.<domain>.de;

include /etc/nginx/snippets/letsencrypt.conf;

ssl on;
ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/<domain>.de/fullchain.pem;

proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_redirect off;


the config on bitbucket looks like this

Base-URL: https://git.<domain>.de
HTTP(S): Enabled
SSH: Enabled
SSH-Port: 7999
SSH-URL: blank



i hope someone here can help me.


Kind regards
