"It appears that your reverse proxy set up is broken" Jenkins URL does not work

New to Jenkins. Installed Jenkins via brew on Mac OS. Was able to bring up Jenkins webpage via http://localhost:8080. After configuring Jenkins URL to http://host_ip_addr:8080, I always get “Safari Can’t Open the Page”. Tried various Mac config but cannot get it work.

those are two different issues. “It appears that your reverse proxy set up is broken” is something jenkins will say when you connect with a) hostname that doesn’t match config or b) going through a proxy that isn’t passing headers properly.

That sounds like something isn’t running, thus can’t give you the reverse proxy issue.

Hi there,

“it doesn’t work” is always hard to remote debug. Try to always include these 3 things.

  1. what did you try? (Code samples, command lines, screenshots, videos, etc)
  2. what did happen? (Error messages, description, outputs, stuff)
  3. what did you expect to happen?

Otherwise, it’s hard for us to get into your context and you’ll have to have someone who is exactly knowledgeable come along.
