Question

Please share your working NGNIX Conf for a SSL Wordpress

I have spent 20 hours trying to solve the issue of infinite 302 redirects to a HTTPS Wordpress site. I have followed the various tutorials, and discussion threads on the Internet. Whatever I try the site simply spins in an infinite 302 redirect loop.

Can someone please share a working NGNIX Conf for a Wordpress with HTTPS.

That’s all I want for Christmas right now.

This should work :-) (I am not using WordPress)

Please generate a DH Group

mkdir /etc/nginx/tls
cd /etc/nginx/tls
openssl dhparam -out dhparams.pem 4096
  • Remove http2 if your NGINX version is under 1.9.5
  • Change ssl_protocols to TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2; to allow older Clients
  • ssl_trusted_certificate should be the full chain
server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

    server_name domain.com;

    return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;
}
server {
    listen 443 ssl http2 default_server;
    listen [::]:443 ssl http2 default_server ipv6only=on;
