I'm working on a reverse proxy with apache as described in the HTTPS read
me. I'm running into a problem where certain actions in ASpace will bump be
to an unencrypted connection (which I'm not listenting for). If I manually
change the http to an https things work. Anyone have a similar problem that
they were able to resolve?

For example:

when I go to view an item (accession in this case), the link will be to
something like this:

which resolves to:


Here is the relevant stanza from my apache config:

<VirtualHost *:443>
  ServerName myaspace.gwu.edu
  SSLEngine On
  SSLCertificateFile "/path/to/server.cer"
  SSLCertificateKeyFile "/path/to/server.key"
  ProxyPreserveHost On
  ProxyPass / http://myaspace.gwu.edu:8080/
  ProxyPassReverse / http://myaspace.gwu.edu:8080/

I have the following line in Aspace's config.rb:

AppConfig[:frontend_proxy_url] = "https://myaspace.gwu.edu"
