Bug? Proxy redirect to root after login success - instead of staying within assigned sub-folder

After login it goes to https://www.my_domain.com/ instead of staying in https://www.my_domain.com/piwik/

I discovered this strange behavior.

this is the apache config file

ProxyHTMLEnable  on
ProxyHTMLExtended on
ProxyHTMLURLMap https://www.my_domain.com/piwik
SetOutputFilter  proxy-html
RequestHeader    unset  Accept-Encoding

This is parts of my config.ini.php file

assume_secure_protocol = 1
force_ssl = 1
trusted_hosts[] = ""

; Uncomment line below if you use a standard proxy
;proxy_client_headers[] = HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR
proxy_host_headers[] = HTTP_X_FORWARDED_HOST

If I go back to the login page, and do a reload, piwik redirects correctly to the application just like I had a successful login. Is my setup wrong, or is this a bug?

Dear courtens,

we are experiencing the same Problem in this setup. Did you find any solution so far? Thanks for any suggestions!


This bug is still active.

Workaround: The only way to log in is to return to the log in page (after log in) to not be redirected to the root folder. I hope this helps.

Here to bug report

Hello losbaeros, sorry for the late answer, but I had no new info on the problem. Now I want to get it working. I have been provided a link to this page, Installation FAQ - Analytics Platform - Matomo which is not really of any help, because this very link is already provided in the error report. The information on that page needs more actual examples. (Like real examples.) I fulled my setup from the production server to a local setup, and I am using fiddler to proxy into apache to recreate the problem. I got is to the point where it is behaving the same way, with the exception that I now can finally “see” part of the “All Websites”. Some images are broken going to the wrong URL. Did you get it to work?
