How to Install WildCard SSL Certificate on LEMP Ubuntu 14.04

Posted July 5, 2014 3.6k views

Please note we used DO’s LEMP on Ubuntu 14.04 Snapshot and then followed:
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-14-04

Then we Installed an instance of WordPress MU by following:
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-with-nginx-on-ubuntu-14-04

Later we initiated SSL Certificate by following:
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-a-ssl-certificate-on-nginx-for-ubuntu-14-04

ALSO WE HAVE PURCHASED A WildCard SSL Certificate from an external CA:
But we are unable to initiate the https:// version of the site??!!

My main concerns are, as per the tutorial:
HAVE CHANGED THE SSH PORT TO A NON CONVENTIONAL PORT + REMOVED ROOT ACCESS

So does the port or user make any difference for SSL Implementation??

Changing the SSH port or disabling root SSH login does not affect your site. Have you installed a firewall on your droplet that might be blocking connections to port 443? What’s the output of sudo iptables-save? If you’re using UFW, please post the output of sudo ufw status instead.

Also check if there’s anything listening on port 443 to make sure the Virtualhost is configured properly:

sudo netstat -plutn | grep 443
