Question

Setting up nginx proxy_pass with SSL & subdomains

Posted April 6, 2014 4.6k views
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

HTTPS connects on port 443. In your Nginx config, try changing the "listen" directive from port "80" to port "443"
