I am running piwik on nginx with php-fpm and I have configured a vhost for port 80 and one for 443. Both work just fine and I am able to login and use piwik via https.

However if I enable "force_ssl_login" Safari throws a "Too many redirects" error.

When using curl -k -v I'm getting another
HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily

Is there maybe a header that is missing like X-FORWARDED-PROTO?
Keywords: ssl


Hmm, forget the last line - that header should only be relevant in proxy setups


Your nginx configuration doesn't appear to set the HTTPS environment variable (which PHP looks for in
). Add this to your nginx config:

fastcgi_param HTTPS on;

Thank you! That helped!
