Question

ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS after setting up SSL

I have seen a few questions like mine, nut none solving my problem. I set up SSL with my web app to protect it, but after I have done that, I keep getting the error “ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS”. I’m not sure if this is a problem with my NGINX file, or another one. Here is the code for my NGINX file:

# HTTP — redirect all traffic to HTTPS
server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;
    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
}

# HTTPS — proxy all requests to the Node app
server {
    # Enable HTTP/2
    listen 443 ssl http2;
    listen [::]:443 ssl http2;
    server_name *****.io;

    # Use the Let’s Encrypt certificates
    ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/*****.io/fullchain.pem;
    ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/*****.io/privkey.pem;

    # Include the SSL configuration from cipherli.st
    include snippets/ssl-params.conf;

    location / {
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header X-NginX-Proxy true;
        proxy_pass http://localhost:3000/;
        proxy_ssl_session_reuse off;
        proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
        proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
        proxy_redirect off;
    }
}

I’m sure my server is running on port 3000. Also, I’m not sure if it’s important but my folder with my Node app doesn’t have the domain extention in it…

Thanks!

You need to specify the server_name for the HTTP block add this line to the first server block

server_name atomz.io

Then restart Nginx and try again.

Hope this helps.
