New Installation of JIRA trying to access

So bear with me, this is my first time installing Jira, so perhaps I screwed up somewhere.  But it seems I am having some issues with JIRA trying to grab resources on the browser from which is not where my installation lives.


The base URL of my jira is set to and for the most part Jira is working great.  However, I've noticed two things broken, and both relate to it trying to grab resources from  Maybe there is a config I missed but I looked around and couldn't find anything.

The first is issue icons. It tries to grab them from instead of my base url.

The second is my activity stream widget on my dashboard seems to be trying to connect to as well.

I'm running the Linux version of JIRA on Ubuntu 15, the errors you are seeing are from Windows 10 Google Chrome.

Are you using a reverse proxy like apache?

If so, try adding ProxyPreserveHost On




I am using a reverse proxy.  In my case, I am using Nginx.  I've configured Nginx as far as I can tell, properly.  As well, I've made updates to Tomcats server.xml to support proxy.  Now the dashboard page after login just loads forever in the browser...jiraerror4.PNGjiraerror5.PNG

I'm a bit confused but after waiting awhile with no real changes, the problem mentioned above fixed itself.  So in the end the settings I posted above are working fine, just took awhile to kick in I guess, or perhaps I missed restarting something.  Regardless, thanks for the help, the mention of reverse proxy helped get me in the right direction.
