Page refresh (F5) jumps to start page

Hello community,

we are using 1.6.p6 CEE. In every view, when I do a page refresh (press F5), it jumps back to the start page.

Linux is CentOS 7.7.1908.
In /etc/httpd/conf.d./ we created a file with the following content.

SSLProxyEngine on

RequestHeader set X-Forwarded-Proto “https”

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [L]

RedirectMatch ^/$ /SITE/$1

Do you have any idea, how we can fix this?


A quick test in my environment does not show that effect. When I press F5, the whole page goes blank for a moment, but reloads to exactly the same view as before.

What is the URL shown in the address bar? This should probably contain “.../check_mk/

What happens when you copy the URL and paste it in a new tab/window?

No idea about the cause or a “real” fix, but:

Usually, you can just click on the view’s title (like “Main Overview” or " Host problems") to reload the main view only. Alternatively, most browsers offer a context menu command to “reload frame” or similar.

Perhaps that already helps as a workaround?

Hi Martin,

I remember the time, where i was able to do like you.
I do not have any idea what changed, that this issue exists.
Even if we change our changes back to default, it is not working. Even if we create a new site, it is not working :frowning:

The URL (including sidebar) is this:


If i do a page refresh, i jump back to the Main Overview (default page after login).
Even copy/paste of this URL is not working - same effect like page reload.

The Reload when I click on “Services of Host …” is working well. Thanks for this tip, but our users usally press F5 ^^

Thanks for your input!!!

Have you specified some sort of landing page in the user creation ?

do you mean “Start URL to display in main frame” in the user settings?
If yes, NO we did not used this option. It is the CheckMK default option.
