Confluence behind reverse proxy missing images

I'm running Confluence (5.10.6) behind a nginx reverse proxy. Everything seems to be OK so far, however, some images are missing. For example, in "$proxy_host/confluence/admin/permissions/globalpermissions.action" all the images are missing. The images have URLs like "$proxy_host/s/en_GB/6441/13fdbe304eeea2f7da9576ad2c58ab11249c6de6/_/images/icons/emoticons/check.png"

If I add the missing(!) "confluence" part manually, at least I can display the image:


Is this an oversight or a bug?

I configured the reverse proxy without context, which made the images work. However, that's not the configuration I was looking for...

I have the same problem (missing images when using reverse proxy) and I use the same confluence version so the problem is consistent. The images that are missing are indeed emoticons such as check.png that should appear on e.g. the permission settings page. 

@Steffen Breitbach, what do you exactly mean with "configured the reserve proxy without context"......ProxyPass nocanon?


I was referring to the URI part, so this is a configuration with context:

ProxyPass /confluence https://$server/confluence/

while this is one without:

ProxyPass /confluence https://$server/confluence/






Thanks but both configurations are identical…. 

You probably mean (2nd config):

ProxyPass /confluence https://servername/confluence/


(btw I do not use a slash after confluence)

I've excatly the same issue with JIRA behind proxy with context root. Any solutions so far?
