[Archivesspace_Users_Group] applying config.rb settings with Apache reverse proxy

I've configured an Apache reverse proxy for the frontend URL using the following instructions:


Exception being that we chose to use a subdirectory instead of a prefix, as follows:

<VirtualHost *:443>
         ProxyPreserveHost On
         ProxyPass /staff http://aris.texas.gov:8080<http://aris.tsl.texas.gov:8080>
         ProxyPassReverse /staff http://aris.texas.gov:8080<http://aris.tsl.texas.gov:8080>

Then in the config.rb file I changed the AppConfig[:frontend_proxy_url] setting to:

         AppConfig[:frontend_proxy_url] = "https://aris.texas.gov/staff<https://aris.tsl.texas.gov/staff>"

With the configuration above, ASpace starts with no error messages, but there is a disconnect that causes problems with record editing processes. The URL, https://aris.texas.gov/staff/top_containers/8/edit, seems to not be able to carry out certain editing and browsing procedures.

I tried adding this setting to config.rb, AppConfig[:front_end]="https://aris.texas.gov/staff<https://aris.tsl.texas.gov/staff>", but that causes Jetty to fail when I restart ArchivesSpace.

Are there settings to use in config.rb or elsewhere that will fix the issue in red?

Thanks for taking a look.
