Here is my current config:

server {
    location ~ ^/bugsbunny/?(.*)$ {
        proxy_set_header Host $host;

I've been trying to figure out how to reverse-proxy requests and preserve the original host. For example let's say I have as my front-end and I want to reverse-proxy the requests to How to preserve the original url so that would become on the front-end ?

P.S. I tried using proxy_set_header Host $host; but this preserves only the original host.

Actually I found it myself. You have to rewrite the links yourself via HttpSubModule. Be sure to set sub_filter_once off so that it replaces all the links on the page, not just the first one it finds.
