Access to the Server thru the machine’s IP and default port (10.xx.xx.64:3000) works. However, when I open the URL from outside nginx reverse proxy the browser loads only the page name but nothing else (blank page).
Server Setup Information

- Proxy: nginx
- Firewalls involved: none
Even though I use my setup in LAN only I want to have SSL, therefore I wanted to use nginx as a reverse proxy using a self signed certificate. I setup nginx according to this instructions: https://rocket.chat/docs/installation/manual-installation/configuring-ssl-reverse-proxy/
According to this instructions: https://rocket.chat/docs/installation/manual-installation/ubuntu/snaps/#how-do-i-change-other-environmental-variables-in-my-snap I tried to set ROOT_URL to the new URL (http*s://10.xx.xx.64). I put a file with the line
Somewhere I found a hint that IP-Adress as URL is not supported (which is bad for me because I want to have access thru VPN as well where no DNS is available) so I also tried with the machines hostname as URL with the same result (http*s://hostname)
Can anyone assist how to troubleshoot this?
