I am trying to set up reverse proxy for https for my wordpress domain. So far, the ip with ssl is already set up but there is a problem when i am accessing the link of my article.

For example, the website is : and i just create a post with link with my ip is : but when i try to access , it return with 404 Not Found. Can i request for a help to how i can set it so that the ip also can shows everything inside my domain? This is how my line looks like

Thank you very much

server {
        listen 80 default_server;
        server_name _;
        return 301 https://$host$request_uri;

server {
        #listen 80 default_server;
        #listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

        listen 443 ssl ;
        listen [::]:443 ssl default_server;

        #ssl on;
        ssl_certificate         /etc/nginx/certificate.crt;
        ssl_certificate_key     /etc/nginx/private.key;

        root /var/www/html;
        index index.php index.html index.htm;

        # Make site accessible from http://localhost/
        server_name localhost;

        location / {

                proxy_ssl_server_name on;
                # First attempt to serve request as file, then
                # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
                try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
                # Uncomment to enable naxsi on this location
                # include /etc/nginx/naxsi.rules

        error_page 404 /404.html;
        error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
        location = /50x.html {
                root /usr/share/nginx/html;

        location ~ \.php$ {
        include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
        fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php8.0-fpm.sock;

        # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
        # concurs with nginx's one
        #location ~ /\.ht {
        #       deny all;

I believe that you don’t need the Proxy pass rule. You could try updating it to:

        location / {
                # This is cool because no php is touched for static content.
                # include the "?$args" part so non-default permalinks doesn't break when using query string
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;

Let me know how it goes. Best, Bobby
