Hue Load-balacing File access error

[ Edited ]



I setup Hue load-balancing following instructions on


So i have nginx running and everything seems working fine.

However when I open a file from File Browswer (http://hueserver:8888/filebrowser/view/filepath)

the page gets redirected to http://hue/filebrowswer/view/filepath, and shows page not found error


i think the unexpected "hue" hostname comes from the upstream name on nginx configuration.


Anyone has any idea how to fix this?

Re: Hue Load-balacing File access error

got it fixed by adding



proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $remote_addr;



to location /{ }


other workaround is to upgrade to cloudera 5.5 (hue 3.9)
