This is the right config, it works for me, I did not put the external url here

nginx['enable'] = true
nginx['redirect_http_to_https'] = true
nginx['redirect_http_to_https_port'] = 80
nginx['ssl_certificate'] = "/etc/gitlab/ssl/gitlab.crt"
nginx['ssl_certificate_key'] = "/etc/gitlab/ssl/gitlab.key"

What it is not sslcertificate it is ssl_certificate the same thing for redirect and key.

Hope this helps


Make sure your server is listening on port 443, show me the output of netstat -ltnp | grep 443

Also you can post the output of your error log tail -50 /var/log/nginx/error.log

Are you sure that your ssl certificates are in the path you specified?
