[LON-CAPA-admin] running loncapa behind nginx reverse proxy

I posted this question back in 2019:


but got no response so I'm trying again.

We run an Nginx reverse proxy front-end server where we do all of our ssl 
termination and proxy to various back-end hosts for various web services. 
Our LON-CAPA server is one of those back-ends.

I want all access to LON-CAPA to use the front-end hostname so that it 
goes through our nginx front-end but I find that some of the LON-CAPA page 
links are being written using the name of the back-end host.

What do I need to tweak to avoid some of the LON-CAPA html hrefs being 
written using the back-end hostname?

What hostname should be in the various lonTabs files: the front-end 
hostname or the back-end hostname?
