Infinite Loop with Force_SSL

I ran into an issue where I keep getting infinite loops on views with force_ssl.  I’m using Nginx and found that I needed to adjust the config.

For me the settings were in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default.

I needed to add this in the @location part:

proxy_set_header X_FORWARDED_PROTO $scheme;

Here's how my file ended up looking:

server {
    listen   443;
    ssl on;
    ssl_certificate     /etc/ssl/xyz.crt;
    listen   80;
    root /home/rails/public;
    server_name _;
    index index.htm index.html;

    location / {
            try_files $uri/index.html $uri.html $uri @app;
    }

#       location ~* ^.+\.     (jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|css|zip|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|xls|exe|pdf|ppt|txt|tar|mid|midi|wav|bmp|rt    f|js|mp3|flv|mpeg|avi)$ {
location ~* ^.+\.    (jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|zip|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|xls|exe|pdf|ppt|txt|tar|mid|midi|wav|bmp|rtf|mp    3|flv|mpeg|avi)$ {
                    try_files $uri @app;
            }

     location @app {
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
            proxy_redirect off;
            proxy_pass http://app_server;
            proxy_set_header X_FORWARDED_PROTO $scheme;
}}
