XF 2.1 Approval queue not updating

Relatively new installation of Xenforo 2.1 at www.mgevs.com
Have a registration in the approval queue.
StopForumSpam matched (username: 29). The user name is Mike in a new forum, so I'm approving it.
Click the Approve radio button and Save, and the page reloads exactly the same, so I can't approve the member.
Tried it in Chrome and Edge. Results the same both times.

That would certainly explain it. The approval queue is processed via job.php.

If it isn't that, then it could be related to a faulty class extension in an add-on.

Just two addons, UIX and User Essentials, both now disabled and the issue still happening.

So have Nimbus not applied the secure certificate thingy properly, then?
I'm not sure about that.
Adding $_SERVER['REQUEST_SCHEME'] = 'https'; to config.php might fix.

Yeah I wouldn't change that config value exactly, though often this helps to workaround it:
PHP:
$_SERVER['HTTPS'] = 'on';
But, indeed, I'd refer the issue to your host in order to solve the issue properly.

With that line in, Chris, I get the same This page isn’t working error FYI.

That won't be it. There really wouldn't be any need for anyone to try and trigger job.php like that.

It's as has been alluded to above. Specifically the server is reporting that its full base path is http instead of https:

The JavaScript config therefore will perform any AJAX request using http rather than https.
