Question

need help forwarding http to https

So, I have this server block that supposed to redirect anything from port 80 to https. but somehow it’s not doing that. and when I access my site just using http. the website does not respond at all. I have my firewalls open(NGINX FULL), and i’m at a loss what do to.

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name opencallcentre.com;
    rewrite ^/(.*) https://opencallcentre.com/$1 permanent;
}




server {
	listen 443 ssl;        


  #root /var/www/html;
  #index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

  server_name opencallcentre.com www.opencallcentre.com;

	ssl on;
	
	ssl_certificate /home/open-call-centre/opencallcentre.com.chained.crt;
  ssl_certificate_key /home/open-call-centre/opencallcentre.com.key;

	ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
	ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
	ssl_ciphers 'EECDH+AESGCM:EDH+AESGCM:AES256+EECDH:AES256+EDH';


       location / {
#		try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

		proxy_pass http://localhost:3000;
		proxy_http_version 1.1;
		proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
		proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
		proxy_set_header Host $host;
		proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
    }

I figured it out. in the networking section of the droplet. the firewall didn’t have a rule that allowed HTTP to be accessed. So I just added that rule.

Hi @marketingScubaDiver,

It seems the server block for port 80 is not configured properly. Can you please try with the following to see if it would work for you

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;
    server_name opencallcentre.com www.opencallcentre.com;
    return 301 https://www.opencallcentre.com$request_uri;
}

I’ll additionally, recommend checking out the following tutorial about Nginx server blocks, it’s a good read :
