Hello, @lonwabo

Could you please let me know if you’ve faced any problems during any of the listed steps in the article? Did you successfully restarted Nginx?

As mentioned it’s okay to see a warning message that your connection is not private. Just click “ADVANCED” and then the link provided to proceed to your host anyways:

Nginx self-signed cert warning

Let me know how it goes!
