Question

Setting up nginx proxy_pass with SSL & subdomains

To start, I’ve read and completed the following articles:

Setting up SSL on Nginx with DO: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-a-ssl-certificate-on-nginx-for-ubuntu-12-04/

Setting up subdomains with DO: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-and-test-dns-subdomains-with-digitalocean-s-dns-panel

Setting up CORS with nginx: http://enable-cors.org/server_nginx.html

My nginx config looks similar to http://p.ngx.cc/52

My problem:

If I connect to my droplet like: https://api.domain.org/some_api_call Then it fails.

But…If I connect using https://api.domain.org:8001/some_api_call Then it works just fine.

I’m relatively new to this, so I appreciate any help. Especially since I’m unsure whether this is a problem with how I’ve gone about configuring DO or nginx.

Thanks
