certificate: /etc/nginx/ssl/todos.pem

I am following along in your article regarding how to setup Meteor on Ubuntu on Digital Ocean. I created a certificate and when I login to my site I get a successful message from Nginx stating all is well. My question is I do not understand how or what to enter into the certificate: /etc/nginx/ssl/todos.pem file. I assume it is the certificate information but where do I find it?

Thank you
