Hi John,

we just figured out the problem. 
Had to follow the instructions at https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/ApacheProxy:


If you place Galaxy behind a proxy address that uses SSL (e.g. https:// URLs), set the following in your Apache config:

Toggle line numbers
<Location "/">
    RequestHeader set X-URL-SCHEME https
Many thanks for your help

Hi John,

Unfortunately swapping out this line for the one in the previous version does not work, but get this error when trying to use ucsc rather than just when transferring back:
Blocked loading mixed active content "http://genome.ucsc.edu/cgi-bin/hgTables"

Also, we are serving galaxy over https, I'm not sure why it is linking back to http (although it would work because it is would be redirected to https).
Is there anywhere I can change the address it links back to so it is https?

Many thanks

Ugh - hit send too soon accidentally.

I was trying to say - that I believe this was recently changed to
allow Galaxy served over HTTPS to access the UCSC in the linked
changeset. I was wondering if you could try to just undo that change
and see if things work for you again.


If that does work - it might work to set that XML block to something like

<inputs action="//genome.ucsc.edu/cgi-bin/hgTables"
check_values="false" method="get">

which may correctly tell the web browser to infer HTTP or HTTPS and
that would be a change I would be happy to make in -central to fix
this problem.

Sorry again for all the e-mails.


P.S. I would definitely serve Galaxy over HTTPS if at all possible -
so that might be something you just want to do now to side this
